Quotes of the day [Aug. 13th, 2002|07:54 am]
Peter Sheil
It is better to have loved and lost than never to have lost at all.
Samuel Butler (1835 - 1902)

In real life, unlike in Shakespeare, the sweetness of the rose depends upon the name it bears. Things are not only what they are. They are, in very important respects, what they seem to be.
Hubert H. Humphrey (1911 - 78 AD)

Never give a party if you will be the most interesting person there.
Mickey Friedman

There are many things that we would throw away if we were not afraid that others might pick them up.
Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900), The Picture of Dorian Gray, 1891

In 7th grade they MADE us read The Picture of Dorian Gray. It is the most difficult book I have ever read, ever. Well, to my 7th grade self, it was.

To this day I've hated it but loved Oscar Wilde. Maybe I should read it again, maybe this time it will make sense.

Re:

Maybe someone else picked up your copy of "The Picture of Dorian Gray" when you threw it away? ;)
