“‘Stuff your eyes with wonder,’ he said, ‘live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. Ask no guarantees, ask for no security, there never was such an animal.'” – from Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
I read The Picture of Dorian Gray in 8th or 9th grade. My inspiration for it being that I liked Dorian in The League of Extraordinary Gentleman, but at least I got something good out of that movie! I don’t know if I realized in 8th grade that The Happy Prince, in which I played a professor, was written by Oscar Wilde.
If it weren’t for Oscar Wilde I wouldn’t have known the word aesthetic before it became part of common language. I am not sure what he would think of that fact.
This age of ours, an age that reads so much, that it has no time to admire, and writes so much that it has no time to think. – Oscar Wilde from “To Read or Not to Read”
Yeah…I am too far behind, to do a dosage to make up for it would give all of you an overdose.
Don’t think I won’t be putting up quotes anymore. Whenever I encounter something in a book, film, television show, etc, I will put it up, but I want to concentrate on putting up my own content, please, don’t be angry. Don’t stop following. I love all of you.
“Fiddlesticks,” Miss Jenny said. “You don’t wonder. You just do things and then stop until the next time to do something comes around.” – from Sanctuary by William Faulkner.
