Courtesy of Oscar Wilde, Lord of the Put-downs:
He is some brainless beautiful creature who should be always here in winter when we have no flowers to look at, and always here in summer when we want something to chill our intelligence.
Taken from The Picture of Dorian Gray.
This is my second reading of the book and I cannot fail to be struck by the intricate genius of Wilde.
Every word a gem, each sentence a wonder and every page literary majesty.
One of the greats, if not the best.
