Interesting Quote – 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.”
Oscar Wilde – in The Preface of The Picture of Dorian Gray

I try to find beautiful meanings in beautiful things and ugly things. This is joy.
