i really enjoyed this book. life only offers youth and vitality once, so who would desire letting it go? sometimes i wish i could just curse a picture of myself to stay young forever. i know that dorian gray did that and he didnt end up so great, but if i could, i would definately stay young. the truth of the matter is that dorian gray never grew up until the end of the book. which is sad because that is right before he... dies. i suppose growing up and getting old is just a part of life that we should all face. no wrinkles and no gray hair is a dream of vanity i suppose... oh well, what is any life if not the pursuit of a dream...?
