Wilde MusingsWednesday, February 1 2012
“How sad it is! I shall grow old […] But this picture will remain always young. It will never be older than this particular day of June… If it were only the other way! If it were I who was to be always young, and the picture that was to grow old! For that-for that-I would give everything! Yes, there is nothing in the whole world I would not give! I would give my soul for that!”
– Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray Ch. 2
And to think this is true of the pictures we take everyday. Luckily, I look forward to the memories of tomorrow too much to be tempted to give my soul for eternal youth.
Et dire que ceci est vrai de chaque photo que l’on capture. Heureusement que l’anticipation de découvrir mes souvenirs de demain m’empêche d’être moi-même tentée de vendre mon âme en échange d’éternelle jeunesse.
