When Oscar Wilde ends up in prison, he starts to read the Bible and writes down his thoughts on what he reads. This is something he wrote that is combined with this painting:
“Those whom he saved from their sins are saved simply for beautiful moments in their lives.
All that Christ says to us by the way of a little warning is that every moment should be beautiful, that the soul should always be ready for the coming of the bridegroom, always waiting for the voice of the lover.
He sees all the lovely influences of life as modes of light: the imagination itself is the world of light. The world is made by it, and yet the world cannot understand it: that is because the imagination is simply a manifestation of love, and it is love and the capacity for it that distinguishes one human being from another.”
