Yet each man kills the thing he loves,
By each let this be heard,
Some do it with a bitter look,
Some with a flattering word,
The coward does it with a kiss,
The brave man with a sword!
Oscar Wilde, “The Ballad of Reading Gaol” (via lheanansidhe)
Oh dear. I desperately wanted to get a tattoo of this in a heart with daggers from about 7th through 10th grade.
