This quote gets even more interesting if you know that Oscar Wilde was one of the only openly homosexual writers in the Victorian Era.

 

In fact, he was sentenced to 2 years of hard labor and imprisonment for his sexuality, which was still illegal in England at the time. 

 

So, for Oscar Wilde, a kiss really did ruin his life.
