FEW QUOTES FROM 'THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY' - OSCAR WILDE

1.If a man treats life artistically, his brain is his heart. 

2.What does it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his own soul? 

3.Anything becomes a pleasure if one does it too often. That is one of the most important secrets of life. 

4.All crime is vulgar, just as all vulgarity is crime. 

5.Civilization is not by any means an easy thing to attain to. There are only two ways by which man can reach it. One is by being cultured, the other by being corrupt. 

6.The tragedy of old age is not that one is old, but that one is young. 

7.The books that the world calls immorale are books that show the world its own shame.

8.Women defend themselves by attacking, just as they attack by sudden and strange surrenders.

9.He lives the poetry that he cannot write. The others write the poetry that they dare not realize.

10.It has been said that the great events of the world take place in the brain. It is in the brain, and the brain only, that the great sins of the world take place also. 

11.A dream of form in days of thought. 

12.Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion. It is not he who is revealed by the painter; it is rather the painter who, on the coloured canvas, reveals himself.

13.The artist is the creator of beautiful things.To reveal art and conceal the artist is art's aim.

14.The soul is a terrible reality. It can be bought, and sold, and bartered away. 

15.A great poet, a really great poet, is the most unpoetical of all creatures. 

16.If one hears bad music, it is one's duty to drown it in conversation.
