Quotes from The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.

An artist should create beautiful things, but should put nothing of his own self into them. We live in an age where men treat art as if it were meant to be a form of autobiography. We have lost the abstract sense of beauty.
-pg. 19

Those who are faithful know only the pleasures of love: it is the faithless who know love’s tragedies.
-pg. 21

  1. Really interesting quotes–not sure I agree with either of them, though!! Wilde is such a quoteable author. Dorian Gray isn’t my favorite work of his (prefer his plays) but I was constantly underlining gems from the book.

  2. Lovely quotes. Very thought-provoking, though I don’t fully agree with both. 🙂
    I SHOULD read this book sometime..

I love to hear your thoughts!
