“It had altered already, and would alter more. Its gold would wither into grey. Its red and white roses would die. For every sin that he committed, a stain would fleck and wreck its fairness. But he would not sin. The picture, changed or unchanged, would be to him the visible emblem of conscience. He would resist temptation” (Wilde 88) Do you think that Dorian can really resist temptation and sin? Can anyone? If he continues along the bad path he is on, what is going to happen to him and the picture?
