Quoting Wilde

The Picture of Dorian Gray is one of my favorite novels, and since my brother has written an inspiring blog entry on Oscar Wilde, I thought I would quote Wilde's famous novel:

All art is at once surface and symbol.Those who go beneath the surface do so at their peril.Those who read the symbol do so at their peril.It is the spectator, and not life, that art really mirrors.Diversity of opinion about a work of art shows that the work is new, complex, and vital.
