"No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist. ~Oscar Wilde Every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future. ~Oscar Wilde Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world. ~Oscar Wilde, The Critic as Artist "
