“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
— Oscar Wilde (Lady Windermere’s Fan)

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)
