“The world is always struggling to express itself,” he went on.  “Most people are not capable of voicing their feelings.  They depend on others.  That is what genius is for.  One man expresses their desires for them in music; another one in poetry; another one in a play.  Sometimes nature does it in a face — it makes the face representative of all desire.  That’s what has happened in your case.” – Sister Carrie

12-7-10 Wilde (Dorian Gray)

“And beauty is a form of genius–is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation.  It is of the great facts of the world, like sunlight, or spring-time, or the reflection in dark waters of that silver shell we call the moon. It cannot be questioned. It has its divine right of sovereignty. It makes princes of those who have it.” – Lord Henry to Dorian Gray, (Chapter 2, The Picture of Dorian Gray – Oscar Wilde)
