Theme Name
Dorian is inspired by The Picture of Dorian Gray, the marvelous work by Oscar Wilde. A short quotation from it, will give you the inspiration to write great posts using this theme.

Here it is:

Words! Mere words! How terrible they were! How clear, and vivid, and cruel! One could not escape from them. And yet what a subtle magic there was in them! They seemed to be able to give a plastic form to formless things, and to have a music of their own as sweet as that of viol or of lute. Mere words! Was there anything so real as words?

Find your own words and share them with the world.

Have fun!
