So today I want to share with you some quotes from one of my favourite books ever, The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. Absolutely full of wonderful witty quotes, its one of those books where you just have to stop reading and write them all down because they're so brilliant. So here we go...

"Experience is merely the name men gave to their mistakes."

"There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. This is all."

"To define is to limit."

"Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing."

"I am too fond of reading books to care to write them."

"When one is in love, one always begins by deceiving one's self, and on always ends by deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance."

"Humanity takes itself too seriously. It is the world's original sin. If the cave-man had known how to laugh, History would have been different."

"Live! Live the wonderful life that is in you! Let nothing be lost upon you. Be always searching for new sensations. Be afraid of nothing."

"The basis of optimism is sheer terror."

"Genius lasts longer than beauty."

I've no doubt missed some quotes out but these are the one's that stand out the most to me. Hope you're all having a great Thursday :-)
