'But it would be absurd for him to marry someone like that.'

Whenever a man does a completely stupid thing, it is always for a good reason.'

It is absurd,' cried the painter, walking up and down the room, biting his lip.

'Dorian Gray falls in love with a beautiful actress who plays Juliet.

I hope that Dorian Gray marries this girl and worships her for six months.

'My dear Harry, my dear Basil, you must both congratulate me!' said the boy, throwing off his coat and shaking each of his friends' hands.

 And yet it seems to me to be the one thing I have been looking for all my life.'

 After, when we were sitting together, there came into her eyes a wonderful look. I can't describe to you what I felt at that moment.'

'At what exact point did you use the word "marry", Dorian?

Lord Henry looked across the table. 'Dorian is never annoyed with me,' he answered.

'And those are... ?' asked Lord Henry, helping himself to some salad.

'Pleasure is the only thing worth having ideas about,' he answered, in his slow, musical voice.

They got up and put on their coats.

When he arrived at the theatre it seemed to Hallward that he had grown years older.

'I understand what you mean, Dorian,' said the painter, 'and I believe in this girl.

In a few minutes you will see the girl who I am going to give my life to.

Yes, she was certainly lovely to look at, Lord Henry thought. Basil Hallward jumped to his feet excitedly. Dorian Gray sat staring at her like he was in a dream.

 I apologize to you both.'

When it was over, Dorian Gray rushed to see Sibyl Vane. The girl was standing there alone, with a look of extraordinary happiness on her face.

 Tonight, for the first time in my life I saw that I was playing at love. Our love for each other is the only true love. Take me away with you, Dorian!

He threw himself down on the sofa, and turned away his face. 'You have killed my love,' he said quietly. Then he jumped up and went to the door.

He pushed her back. 'Don't touch me!' he cried.

 As he passed through the library, he saw the portrait that Basil Hallward had painted of him. He stared at it in surprise and walked on into his bedroom.

He took his coat off and stood next to his bed.

 He would go back to Sibyl Vane, marry her and try to love her again.

He got up from his chair, and covered the portrait. 'How horrible!' he said to himself, and he walked across to the window and opened it.

 When he stepped out on to the grass he took a deep breath.
