Oscar Wilde

If, with the literate, I am
Impelled to try an epigram,
I never seek to take the credit;
We all assume that Oscar said it.

n aphorism is a short, witty statement that usually reflects some truth about life.... Aphorisms are similar to proverbs. An epigram is a short poem that also expresses some truth, but it might have a sarcastic or humorous tone.
