#AMREADING OSCAR WILDE, THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY

Well, re-reading it, but this is one of the most quotable novels ever  -- disgustingly glib, but undeniably witty.
  • The moment one sits down to think, one becomes all nose, or all forehead, or something horrid.
  • The ugly and stupid live s we all should live, undisturbed, indifferent, and without disquiet.
  • Passion is a useful thing to get your book published. Nowadays a broken heart will run to many editions.
  • Women are a decorative sex. They never have anything to say, but they say it charmingly.
  • What they call loyalty, I call either the lethargy of custom or their lack of imagination.
  • Is insincerity such a terrible thing? Not at all. It is merely a method by which we can multiply our personalities.
