"Only the shallow know themselves."

Flavorwire recently posted an audio clip (via Open Culture) of Oscar Wilde reciting two verses of his 1897 poem The Ballad of Reading Gaol. It's initially tough to make out Wilde's voice, but if you listen carefully things clear up by the end of the second verse. By that point you should have a pretty clear idea of what the voice in your head should sound like when you walk around mentally quoting Wilde's deliciously snide witticisms.
