Oscar Wilde
“The basis of optimism is sheer terror.”

And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.”

Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field
“Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be.”
J. D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

Oscar Wilde
“To define is to limit.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
