Why do people say oscar wilde invented this quote?

Why do people say Oscar Wilde invented the quote:

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken. ?

    The sources of quotes are often hard to track, and the wording often changes over time. Oscar Wilde did use the quote, but he doesn't seem to have created it. Read the web page linked below for a history of this quote.
