More of Joseph's books…
Vladimir Nabokov
“Some might think that the creativity, imagination, and flights of fancy that give my life meaning are insanity.”
Vladimir Nabokov

Oscar Wilde
“It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.”
Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere's Fan

Yukio Mishima
“What I wanted was to die among strangers, untroubled, beneath a cloudless sky. And yet my desire differed from the sentiments of that ancient Greek who wanted to die under the brilliant sun. What I wanted was some natural, spontaneous suicide. I wanted a death like that of a fox, not yet well versed in cunning, that walks carelessly along a mountain path and is shot by a hunter because of its own stupidity…”
Yukio Mishima, Confessions of a Mask

Oscar Wilde
“Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“I don't want to repeat my innocence. I want the pleasure of losing it again.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise
