Free Download: Oscar Wilde, “The Picture of Dorian Gray”

 “Don’t deceive yourself. Life is not governed by will or intention. Life is a question of nerves, and fibres, and slowly built-up cells in which thought hides itself and passion has its dreams. You may fancy yourself safe and think yourself strong. But a chance tone of color in a room or a morning sky, a particular perfume that you had once loved and that brings subtle memories with it, a line from a forgotten poem that you had come across again, a cadence from a piece of music that you had ceased to play... it is on things like these that our lives depend.”
- Oscar Wilde, “The Picture of Dorian Gray”
