Dorian Gray

"You have a wonderfully beautiful face, Mr. Gray. Don't frown. You have.
 And Beauty is a form of Genius, is higher indeed than Genius, as it needs no explanation.
 It is one of the great facts of the world, like sunlight,or spring-time, or the reflections in dark waters of that silver shell we call the moon.   It cannot be questioned. 
 It has its Divine right of sovereignty.
It makes princes of those who have it."

- The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde
