"The only way to free oneself from temptation is to give in" Oscar Wilde While the young Dorian Gray poses for a splendid portrait of himself, he is bewitched by the hedonistic speeches of a mysterious dandy who engages him in an evil pact. "You have an admirable youth, Mr. Gray, and youth is the only thing that matters in this world. You do not feel that way today. One day, when you're old, wrinkled and ugly, you'll realize it. Every moment brings you closer to something horrible. The impulse of joy that beats us at twenty ends up languishing, our forces fail, our senses rot. We degenerate into hideous puppets, haunted by the memory of passions we were too afraid of, and by the exquisite temptations to which we did not have the courage to give in!" Dorian Gray listened to these words and, turning to a splendid portrait of himself, he said in a low voice: "If it was the portrait that changed and I would always remain the same...! for that I would give everything. Yes, there is nothing in the world that I would not give. I would give my soul for it!"
