1-beads-and-pieces

If last week I was indulging with a selection of my favorite Alice in Wonderland quotes, this week I’m touching on the subject of vanity, appearances, beauty and morality. Or at least the versions that appear in Oscar Wilde‘s magnificent novel The Picture of Dorian Grey.

 

“There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.”

“You will always be fond of me. I represent to you all the sins you never had the courage to commit.”

3-beads-and-pieces

“The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it.”

4-beads-and-pieces

“Some things are more precious because they don’t last long.”

5-beads-and-pieces

“She is very clever, too clever for a woman. She lacks the indefinable charm of weakness.”

6-beads-and-pieces

“Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.”

7-beads-and-pieces

“I hate vulgar realism in literature. The man who would call a spade a spade should be compelled to use one.”

8-beads-and-pieces

“Live! Live the wonderful life that is in you! Let nothing be lost upon you. Be always searching for new sensations. Be afraid of nothing.”
