Scene on Three #1

It was almost nine o’clock before he reached the club, where he found Lord Henry sitting alone, in the morning-room, looking very much bored.

‘I am so sorry, Henry,’ he cried, ‘but really it is entirely your fault. That book you sent me so fascinated me that I forgot how the time was going.’

‘Yes: I thought you would like it,’ replied his host, rising from his chair.

‘I didn’t say I liked it, Harry. I said it fascinated me. There is a great difference.’

‘Ah, you have discovered that?’ murmured Lord Henry. And they passed into the dining-room.

Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray.

‘I am very interested and fascinated how everyone loves each other, but no one really likes each other.’ 

Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

I was quite enthralled with the first quote. It kind of made me smile. Then not so long hours after reading that, I circumstantially saw the second quote on Goodreads.

It is perhaps feeling very much often obscures reality.
