Oscar Wilde on Books

“Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated.

That is all.” ― Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

My Antique Instrument Case

My Antique Instrument Case

When I was a child, I somehow came to acquire an old antique instrument case, and I used it as my treasure box, storing whatever items I found interesting or of value.  I've had it for decades, yet for quite a long time, I went without giving much thought or attention to it. Back in 1986, when my parents moved out and purchased a new house, there wasn't enough space for all of my belongings in my new bedroom, let alone an old antique box filled with what would be considered unnecessary junk in the eyes of an adult.  My parents at the time didn't see how the antique wooden box could possibly...

Why Jack Kerouac Was Right About Society

Kerouac by Tom Palumbo, circa 1956, licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.0 Generic license.  [Source] Jack Kerouac once said, "...the ones for me are...the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing...," [link] which to most people only cemented the notion that Kerouac himself was a self-absorbed egotist, but to me he was simply stating a fact that he was more intellectually achieved than most, and preferred to surround himself with others of equal intellectual achievement. Aside from the egotistical nature of his personality, Jack Kerouac was somebody who was able...
