Hallward quotes by Oscar Wilde
#1. Poets are not so scrupulous as you are. They know how useful passion is for publication. Nowadays a broken heart will run to many editions."

Some day I will show the world what is it; and for that the world shall never see my portrait of Dorian Gray. #Quote by Oscar Wilde

The reason I will not exhibit this picture is that I am afraid that I have shown in it the secret of my own soul. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Hallward quotes by Oscar Wilde

Hallward quotes by Oscar Wilde
#6. In the centre of the room, clamped to an upright easel, stood the full-length portrait of a young man of extraordinary personal beauty, and in front of it, some little distance away, was sitting the artist himself, Basil Hallward, whose sudden disappearance some years #Quote by Oscar Wilde

#10. The portrait that Basil Hallward had painted of him would be a guide to him through life, would be to him what holiness is to some, and conscience to others, and the fear of God to us all. There were opiates for remorse, drugs that could lull the moral sense to sleep. But here was a visible symbol of the degradation of sin. Here was an ever-present sign of the ruin men brought upon their souls. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
