HARRY : what are you?

DORIAN : i am what you made me! i lived the life that you preached but never dared practise. i am everything that you were too afraid to be. but i was trying...i was trying so hard.....to be a better man.

First edition of The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, published in London by Ward Lock and Co. This edition is a presentation copy inscribed by Oscar Wilde, circa 1891. Now available in many editions including Penguin Readers. And in movie too. But obviously I prefer book. :)
