“The idea is to die young, as late as possible.” – Ashley Montagu

Possibly one of my favourites. Enjoy life, live for the moment and keep your young soul in your old age. Live your life in the fast lane but be slow enough to stop and smell the roses.

The Picture of Dorian Gray.

“Harry,” said Basil Hallward, looking him straight in the face, “every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion. It is not he who is revealed by the painter; it is rather the painter who, on the coloured canvas, reveals himself. The reason I will not exhibit this picture is that I am afraid that I have show in it the secret of my own soul.”

Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
