CROWN OF THORNS

 

“…the thorn-crown of the poet
will blossom into roses for our pleasure;
for our delight his despair will gild its own thorns,
and his pain, like Adonis, be beautiful in its agony;
and when the poet’s heart breaks it will break in music.”

 

~ Oscar Wilde ~

One thought on “CROWN OF THORNS

  1. “No one can understand Paris and its history who does not understand that its fierceness is the balance and justification of its frivolity. It is called a city of pleasure; but it may also very specially be called a city of pain. The crown of roses is also a crown of thorns. Its people are too prone to hurt others, but quite ready also to hurt themselves. They are martyrs for religion, they are martyrs for irreligion; they are even martyrs for immorality.” ~ Gilbert K. Chesterson
