from The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde

Aphorisms:
Preface
“There is no such thing as a moral or immoral book. Books are well written or badly written”
Chapter 4: “A great poet, a really great poet, is the most unpoetical of all creatures. But inferior poets are absolutely fascinating. The mere fact of having published a book of second-rate sonnets makes a man quite irresistable. He lives the poetry that he cannot write. The others write the poetry that they dare not realise”.
“Experience was of no ethical value. It was merely the name men gave to their mistakes”
from A Woman of No Importance:
Children begin by loving their parents. After a time, they judge them. Rarely, if ever, they forgive them.
from The Duchess of Padua:
“We are each our own devil and we make this world our hell”
