"It is quite true I have worshipped you with far more romance of feeling than a man should ever give to a friend. Somehow I have never loved a woman.... From the moment I met you, your personality had the most extraordinary influence over me.... I adored you madly, extravagantly, absurdly. I was jealous of everyone to whom you spoke. I wanted to have you all to myself. I was only happy when I was with you."

--Oscar Wilde, in one of the passages of The Picture of Dorian Gray that has been restored in a new edition

My all-time favorite book, The Picture of Dorian Grey. I've loved it since I was in grade school. Can't wait to see what they've done with it.
