Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast.

Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast.
— Oscar Wilde, An Ideal Husband, 1893

I once had a post card with this phrase on it. I pinned it up in my office, because I am not brilliant at breakfast, or at least not until I have had coffee. The card had been there for barely a day, when I coincidentally learned from my boss, that he felt  he “Did his best work first thing in the morning.”  The postcard lived in my drawer for many years!
