那些所谓王尔德的名言都是Lord Henry 说的。
This book is poisonous. It has the ability to corrupt. 我相信这是几乎是王尔德的自身写照，过于自负的追求美丽，双性恋，雄辩的口才，过度沉迷美和青春。然而美与道德总会发生矛盾的，有时候，美本身就是一种毒药，王尔德其实心里太清楚这个了，但是他没有办法战胜自己的性格缺陷，于是他从不可一世的社交名流，变成了一个声名狼藉的人，他自己也说过，If I can't be famous, at least I can be nortorious.看这本书，你可以想象一个活生生的王尔德，怎样悠然自得地行走于伦敦上层社会的社交场合，用一串一串的妙语蛊惑人心，展现自己的魅力，享受公众的瞩目，以及，最后如何声败名裂。
"I wish I could love," cried Dorian Gray, with a deep note of pathos in his voice. "But I seem to have lost the passion, and forgotten the desire. I am too much concentrated on myself. My own personality has become a burden to me. I want to escape, to go away, to forget."
"When I like people immensely I never tell their names to anyone. It is like surrendering a part of them." NEVER, EVER, ask me ANYTHING about him.
I like men who have a future and women who have a past

又单纯又复杂。Dorian你死得好突然。（如果今晚看完The Newsroom E08还有时间就来写篇心得。）
It all started with a portrait and ended with its undying beauty. Wilde's exquisite language, his most uncanny ambivalence; somehow I should believe what Basil said at the beginning: I have put too much of myself into it. Wilde is all in his work. Every word is permeated with his vision, his portentous despair. It's indeed affecting.
