Dorian Grey quotes by Oscar Wilde
#1. My dear boy, the people who only love once in their lives are really the shallow people. What they call their loyalty, and their fidelity, I call either the lethargy of custom or their lack of imagination. Faithfulness is to the emotional life what consistency is to the life of the intellect - simply a confession of failures. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Dorian Grey quotes by Oscar Wilde
#2. Life has everything in store for you, Dorian. There is nothing that you, with your extraordinary good looks, will not be able to do."
"But suppose, Harry, I became haggard, and old, and wrinkled? What then?"
"Ah, then," said Lord Henry, rising to go, "then, my dear Dorian, you would have to fight for your victories. As it is, they are brought to you. No, you must keep your good looks. We live in an age that reads too much to be wise, and that thinks too much to be beautiful. We cannot spare you." (8.19) #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Dorian Grey quotes by Oscar Wilde
#3. An artist should create beautiful things, but should put nothing of his own life into them. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Dorian Grey quotes by Walton Goggins
#4. 'The Portrait of Dorian Grey' beautifully articulates how the altruistic part of ourselves clashes with our essentially narcissistic state. #Quote by Walton Goggins
Dorian Grey quotes by Abby Rosmarin
#5. I warned her that her lover is
the Picture of Dorian Gray
in reverse.

Instead of the portrait taking in
the ugliness
and sin
so he can be and
whatever he wants


he lets himself be ugly
so the image can stay

- Dorian Grey #Quote by Abby Rosmarin
Dorian Grey quotes by Oscar Wilde
#6. I worshipped you too much. I am punished for it. You worshipped yourself too much. We are both punished. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Dorian Grey quotes by Oscar Wilde
#7. It is perfectly monstrous,' he said, at last, 'the way people go about nowadays saying things against one behind one's back that are absolutely and entirely true. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Dorian Grey quotes by Oscar Wilde
#8. It is better to be beautiful than to be good. But ... it is better to be good than to be ugly. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Dorian Grey quotes by Mini Grey
#9. Biscuits are sweet things in Britain, and apparently in America a biscuit is something like a scone, something savory that you'd have with soup. #Quote by Mini Grey
Dorian Grey quotes by Quinn Loftis
#10. He walked over to Jacque, whose head was bowed and turned so that her neck was bared. It was like she knew instinctively to submit so as to not provoke the dominant wolf and hopefully she would subdue him in her surrender. Fane's wolf must have been the one in control of the wheel because he leaned down over Jacque and growled low. He placed his face against her neck, breathing deep, and his voice was guttural when he spoke. "Mine."
Jacque turned her head slightly and did what no other would ever be able to do when this Alpha was at this point, she looked him in the eyes. "Yes, I am yours." As soon as the words were out of her mouth, Fane pulled his power in and all of a sudden it was like a weight had been lifted and they could breathe again.

Dorian Grey quotes by L.A. Casey
#11. I looked to the sitting room then and gaped at Alec's body lying across my sofa making it look smaller than it was. He was reading something.
A book.
"What are you readin'?" I curiously asked.
"That porn book we were talking about earlier at my house. This dude is my God! He just fucked this Ana chick while she was on her period."
"Stop it!" I screeched. "Stop readin' and put the bloody book down!"
He was reading Fifty Shades of Grey.
I was both horrified and mortified.
Alec got up from the sofa, placed the book on the coffee table and turned in my direction.
"Why are you blushing?"
Him noticing my embarrassment only caused my already red cheeks to heat up even more.
"Oh damn, your cheeks are so flushed," Alec said and took a step towards me. #Quote by L.A. Casey
Dorian Grey quotes by Edward Grey
#12. I thought this must be obvious to everyone else, as it seemed obvious to me; and that, if once it became apparent that we were on the edge, all the Great Powers would call a halt and recoil from the abyss. #Quote by Edward Grey
Dorian Grey quotes by Angela Carter
#13. In the dewy wood tinselled with bewildering moonlight, the bumbling, tumbling babies of the fairy creche trip over the hem of her dress, which is no more nor less than the margin of the wood itself; they stumble in the tangled grass as they play with the coneys, the quick brown fox-cubs, the russet fieldmice and the wee scraps of grey voles, blind velvet Mole and striped Brock with his questing snout - all the denizens of the woodland are her embroiderings, and the birds flutter round her head, settle on her shoulders and make their nests in her great abundance of disordered hair, in which are plaited poppies and ears of wheat. #Quote by Angela Carter
Dorian Grey quotes by Kathryn Smith
#14. You look lovely tonight, my lady," Kellan said for her ears alone as he took her into his arms-not too close, of course.
His flattery pleased her but did not discompose her as Grey's did. Rose smiled sincerely in response. "Thank you, sir. Might I say that you are in very fine looks as well."
"You always know exactly the right thing to say to woo me, Lady Rose." He grinned as they moved through a turn. "Have a care, else you're likely to break my heart."
"If it is so easily broken, perhaps you should hold it a little more dear," she advised archly.
He winced, but it was apparent that he had taken the remark with the humor she intended. "She mocks me."
"You are mistaken, sir. I am merely thinking of your best interests."
They shared a smile and were silent for a turn.
"I am surprised that Ryeton allowed you to come tonight."
Rose raised a brow. "The duke does not dictate where I can and cannot go." Grey might be her benefactor, but he was not her guardian.
"That is good to hear," Kellan replied, ignoring the edge to her tone. "So he cannot prevent you from taking a drive in Hyde Park with me tomorrow afternoon."
She chuckled. "No, I suppose not. But first, you might want to ask me if I care to take a drive with you."
"Do you?"
She did. Did that make her awful? Just a few minutes ago she'd been missing Grey and thinking about how much she cared for him, and now here she was flirting with Kellan and fluttering over the #Quote by Kathryn Smith
Dorian Grey quotes by Skylar Grey
#15. There's this one song called 'Final Warning' that I'm really excited about because I love the contrast of my vocal sounding very soothing and my harsh lyrics. #Quote by Skylar Grey
Dorian Grey quotes by Kimberly  Grey
#16. What I wouldn't give for one last you, my broked

half, to be again

what fractures you, what wholes you back. #Quote by Kimberly Grey
Dorian Grey quotes by Derek Shepherd
#17. It's a beautiful day to save lives. Let's have some fun. #Quote by Derek Shepherd
Dorian Grey quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#18. I wish you the best of luck," Grey said politely. "And I do hope that the gentleman Tom saw in the custody of the press gang was Mr. Gormley. However - if he was, does this not rather obviate your conclusion that he was in possession of incriminating information regarding the perpetrator?"

Jones gave him a glassy look, and Tom Byrd looked reproving.

"Now, me lord, you know you oughtn't talk like that at this hour of the morning. You got to pardon his lordship, sir," he said apologetically to Jones. "His father - the duke, you know - had him schooled in logic. He can't really help it, like."

(Haunted Soldier) #Quote by Diana Gabaldon
Dorian Grey quotes by Rachelle Mills, Fin's Claim
#19. The world is not made up of black or white, it's a mixture of those colors that gets blurred together, fighting each other. Good vs evil, light vs, dark. Grey is what wins. A palette of color sometimes very light, sometimes very dark, and everything in between. We all live in the Grey. #Quote by Rachelle Mills, Fin's Claim
Dorian Grey quotes by Per Petterson
#20. The young swans as big as their parents now, but still grey and it looks peculiar, like two different species swimming in a line, alike in all their movements, and no doubt they think they are the same, while everyone can see that they are not. #Quote by Per Petterson
Dorian Grey quotes by Brad Grey
#21. I can only say that in life when you have the greatest expectations and you try to do things the right way, it doesn't always work out. #Quote by Brad Grey
Dorian Grey quotes by E.L. James
#22. I hate fighting with you," he whispers.
"Well, stop being such an arse."
He chuckles and the captivating sound reverberates through his chest. He tightens his hold on me. "Arse?"
"I prefer arse."
"You should. It suits you. #Quote by E.L. James
Dorian Grey quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#23. More wonderful than the lore of old men and the lore of books is the secret lore of the ocean. Blue, green, grey, white, or black; smooth, ruffled, or mountainous; that ocean is not silent. All my days I have watched it and listened to it, and I know it well. At first it told to me only the plain little tales of calm beaches and near ports, but with the years it grew more friendly and spoke of other things; of things more strange and more distant in space and time. #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
Dorian Grey quotes by Sasha Grey
#24. I don't like any one race or look or type of guy. My tastes as far as looks go are very diverse. I like guys with scruffy beards and leather jackets, but I also like a clean-cut 'GQ'-type guy, so my tastes are very ranged among somebody who laughs at my dumb jokes, too. I have plenty of them. #Quote by Sasha Grey
Dorian Grey quotes by Frederick Lenz
#25. Mind is not simply the collection of aggregate cells inside your brain. If you are only the grey matter, then when that dies, you won't exist any more. It's not that easy. You exist forever. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Dorian Grey quotes by E.L. James
#26. - Come on, Miss Steele, sooner you're in bed, sooner you'll be fucked and sooner you can sleep.
- Mr Grey, you are a born romantic #Quote by E.L. James
Dorian Grey quotes by Kathryn Smith
#27. And then the world stopped and there was nothing but Rose as she slipped from the crowd to stand before him. Grey forgot about Lady Devane. He forgot about everyone but her.
She wore a mask, but even if he hadn't recognized the hair and the dress he would have known it was her. He knew her scent, the shape of her mouth. He recognized her by the way his heart rejoiced at her nearness.
She stared at him, her mask doing nothing to conceal her wonder. "Why are you here?"
Grey smiled down at her. Did she notice that he'd pinned the rosette from the gown she'd worn their first night together to his lapel? "Because I hold you above my horse, my fortune, and my pride."
Her brow puckered. "I beg your pardon?"
"Those were the traits you said you required in a husband, were they not?"
Her face relaxed, and he thought he saw a glimmer of understanding in her dark eyes. "Yes. I believe they were. You came here just to tell me that?"
He laughed. Her face was so bright below the edge of her mask, her eyes damp and warm. It broke is heart-and buoyed it as well-to know he was responsible for all of that. "No. I came here to dance with my wife. And to do this." He took her face in his hands and kissed her in front of the entire ballroom. He didn't care about the gasps or that everyone could see. He didn't care what they said or whether or not his behavior was proper.
He was a duke, damn it. A scandalous one at that.
When he lifted his head, Rose's e #Quote by Kathryn Smith
Dorian Grey quotes by J. Valor
#28. The boy knelt, shoulders bowed, on the sand in the grey of morning, moaning softly, fearfully. Glowing tendrils of energy streamed across the agitated sky, converging high above him in a vortex of brightness. He flung his hands heavenward and a sheet of blinding brilliance descended from the vortex. It enveloped him and from its core a pulsing sphere of light fell, entering his body and almost tearing him apart. He went rigid, screaming to shatter the heavens, his dark eyes bulging from their sockets, his mouth wide in a rictus of agony. Sirius exploded in a burst of silver-blue radiance, as his howl rose to a shriek beyond hearing and endurance. Out of the light and the sound and the anguish, two names imprinted themselves on his mind. One of them, he knew, was his own.
The other floated for an instant above his consciousness like a fugitive white dove in the morning. #Quote by J. Valor
Dorian Grey quotes by Jamie Dornan
#29. I am never going to please all 100 million people who read the book. I'll be lucky if half that number are happy with me playing Christian Grey. I know there are campaigns of hate against me already. #Quote by Jamie Dornan
Dorian Grey quotes by Jasper Fforde
#30. There's more to good or bad than what's written in the Rulebook. #Quote by Jasper Fforde
Dorian Grey quotes by Peter Shepherd
#31. So many assume the truth is either black or white ... It's all evolution or it's totally creation, for example. Reality creates consciousness; consciousness creates reality. Actually truth is inclusive, neither black nor white, nor a shade of grey. Indeed, truth is a multicolored spectrum, a beautiful hologram! #Quote by Peter Shepherd
Dorian Grey quotes by Belinda Subraman
#32. No Absolutes

The sound of the human voice like the bell ring of metal and crisp air under grey skies -

romantic yet ominous -

Don't worry about contradictions. No one is innocent.

No one is guilty.

We are all misunderstood even by ourselves.

Yet when we know love

we know everything. #Quote by Belinda Subraman
Dorian Grey quotes by Serena Grey
#33. His voice is hoarse. "I am going to make love to you now." He says, "So if you want me to stop, tell me."
I shake my head frantically. If he stops at this point, I'll probably die. #Quote by Serena Grey
Dorian Grey quotes by Kathryn Smith
#34. What were she and Maxwell talking about at this moment?
"I owe you an apology." Archer came to stand beside him, also looking over the garden. "I shouldn't have said what I did. It was very low of me."
Grey shrugged. "You've said worse."
"True, but those times I was right."
He laughed. "I'm not so sure you're not right now as well."
"You're many things, but I've never thought coward amongst them."
"That's because you're my younger brother. You're not supposed to have an accurate opinion of my strengths and weaknesses."
"And as eldest, I suppose you do have an accurate accounting of my strengths and weaknesses, Tryst as well?"
Grey turned his head with a brash grin. "Only your weaknesses. I haven't ascertained if you have any strengths yet."
Thankfully his brother laughed. "Bastard," he muttered.
"Undoubtedly." Then, with more seriousness, "I do know your weaknesses, Arch. You've a soft spot for a pretty face, especially one you think is in need of rescue."
Archer scoffed. "I haven't tried to play anyone's Lancelot since school."
"Be that as it may, I feel I should warn you away from Rose."
His brother stilled, arched a brow, and fixed him with a decidedly superior look. "Is this warning for my benefit or hers? Or perhaps your own?"
Grey frowned. "For the benefit of everyone involved. She doesn't need you to rescue her, and she'd only marry you because-"
"Because I remind her of you." He grinned at Grey #Quote by Kathryn Smith
Dorian Grey quotes by Sasha Grey
#35. There are so many aspects of human sexuality that we're afraid to talk about, because people still don't understand it. It's not just black and white, you know? #Quote by Sasha Grey
Dorian Grey quotes by William Trevor
#36. The wife he had first chosen had dressed drably: from silence and inflexious--more than from words--he learned that now. Her grey hair straggled to her shoulders, her back was a little humped. He poked his way about, and they were two old people when they went out on their rounds, older than they were in their ageless happiness. She wouldn't have hurt a fly, she wasn't a person you could be jealous of, yet of course it was hard on a new wife to be haunted by happiness, to be challenged by the simplicities there had been. He had given himself to two women; he hadn't withdrawn from the first, he didn't from the second.
Each house that contained a piano brought forth its contradictions. The pearls old Mrs. Putrill wore were opals, the pallid skin of the stationer in Kiliath was freckled, the two lines of oaks above Oghill were surely beeches? 'Of course, of course,' Owen Dromgould agreed, since it was fair that he should do so. Belle could not be blamed for making her claim, and claims could not be made without damage or destruction. Belle would win in the end because the living always do. And that seemed fair also, since Violet had won in the beginning, and had had the better years."

--"The Piano Tuner's Wives #Quote by William Trevor
Dorian Grey quotes by Becca Fitzpatrick
#37. Positive. In other news, Marcie's throwing a Halloween party here at the farmhouse."
Patch smiled. "Grey - Millar family drama?"
"The theme is famous couples from history. Could she be any less original? Worse, she's roped my mom into this. They went shopping for decorations today. For three whole hours. It's like they're suddenly best friends." I picked up another apple slice and made a face at it. "Marcie is ruining everything. I wanted Scott to go with Vee, but Marcie already convinced him to go with her." Patch's smile widened.
I aimed my best sulky look at him. "This isn't funny. Marcie is destroying my life. Whose side are you on anyway?"
Patch raised his hands in surrender. "I'm staying out of this. #Quote by Becca Fitzpatrick
Dorian Grey quotes by Angela Carter
#38. You are always in danger in the forest, where no people are. Step between the portals of the great pines where the shaggy branches tangle about you, trapping the unwary traveller in nets as if the vegetation itself were in a plot with the wolves who live there, as though the wicked trees go fishing on behalf of their friends--step between the gateposts of the forest with the greatest trepidation and infinite precautions, for if you stray from the path for one instant, the wolves will eat you. They are grey as famine, they are as unkind as plague. #Quote by Angela Carter
Dorian Grey quotes by Agatha Christie
#39. A malformation of the grey cells may coincide quite easily with the face of a Madonna. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Dorian Grey quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#40. All that the unsuspecting Bilbo saw that morning was an old man with a staff. He had a tall pointed blue hat, a long grey cloak, a silver scarf over which his long white beard hung down below his waist, and immense black boots.
"Good morning!" said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out further than the brim of his shady hat.
"What do you mean?" he said. "Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I wish it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?"
"All of them at once," said Bilbo. "And a very fine morning for a pipe of tobacco out of doors, into the bargain." Then Bilbo sat down on a seat by his door, crossed his legs, and blew out a beautiful grey ring of smoke that sailed up into the air without breaking and floated away over The Hill. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Dorian Grey quotes by Dorian
#41. Health is a presence of a superior state of wellbeing, a vigor, a vitality, a pizzazz you have to work for every single day of your life. #Quote by Dorian "Doc" Paskowitz
Dorian Grey quotes by Alexis Hall
#42. Essex was just a shadow in the room, the shadow of a thing I wanted, which was itself a shadow of wanting. But it was unspeakably sweet to feel even that, and terrifying to know how quickly it would pass. A moment inscribed on water, a memory that would fade to grey. I was nothing but a ghost hunter, chasing the wraith of the man I used to be. A beachcomber of my own detritus. #Quote by Alexis Hall
Dorian Grey quotes by Madison Thorne Grey
#43. We are immortal beings, Thristan. You cannot hate me throughout all eternity. #Quote by Madison Thorne Grey
Dorian Grey quotes by Karen Traviss
#44. Why should I cooperate with you now?"
"Because you're stuck in a ship with four creatively sadistic people who hate your grey guts, and maybe the Jedi and the strill aren't that fond of you either, and all you've got are the clothes you stand in. See how long you last… #Quote by Karen Traviss
Dorian Grey quotes by E.A.Drake
#45. As we prepared for sleep that night I noticed that Lisa was staring at her reflection in the mirror. She looked as young now as the day I met her, no grey upon her jet black hair, face always pale, she rarely sun bathed, dark glittering eyes and finally pearly white teeth. What a woman, always passionate about her affairs and always interested in my work. Shame her family could not attend our wedding. I suppose that is the hazard of marrying a Slav, either the family is dead, scattered or too poor to fly to England. Still it was a happy wedding, a quiet one with a few friends from work.

Lisa crawled into bed beside me; her body, always cold, quickly warmed to my touch. Why are women always cold when they first get into bed? We kissed for what seemed an age, caressing each other's bodies until at last she pushed me onto my back, straddled me and smiled looking down into my eyes. She licked her lips and slowly leant forward.

The next morning I checked my neck for any tell-tale signs of our love making. Again Lisa had bitten every inch of my body and left not a mark. I smiled down at her sleeping form, kissed her cheek and went to my study. I had term papers to mark and research for my next set of lectures.

Lisa came into my study just after lunch. For a woman just out of bed she looked remarkably well, her hair was untangled, her cheeks full in bloom, there were no signs of tiredness in her eyes at all.

I smiled at her as we kissed, t #Quote by E.A.Drake
