Inner Beauty to External Beauty Beauty never lasts forever but if there is inner beauty it will shine through the skin and penetrate to the surface If the inner beauty is corrupted the beauty on the outside will corrupt as well The perfect examples Dorian Gray and Narcissus two men destroyed by their own beauty Dorian is a wealthy young socialite that is corrupted when he discovers he will never grow old and only his painting will bear the age and sins he commits Narcissus is an innocent beauty that falls in love with his own image and dies These two are similar in many aspects in which Dorian Gray reflects the mythology of Narcissus in a more modern and cynical version portraying them self-centered with only their beauty and beliefs Pure and nave that was how Dorian and Narcissus began Both inside and out they glowed from their beauty and innocence while everyone around adored them But temptations and sins are always part of the society in which they are surrounded by Dorian stunned by Lord Henrys remarks on how he has only a few years in which to live really perfectly and fully But is it true As you get older you lose your beauty and you cant live fully I dont believe it I know many beautiful people in their adult life living happily and still striving for their dream One of them is my father who dreamed of having his own company Now he has several and he is able to live fully each day with his own kind of beauty a pure sense of innocence in which he keeps with his hopes and dreams to accomplish his goals However consequently Lord Henry says to Dorian When your youth goes your beauty will go with it and then you will suddenly discover that there are no triumphs left for you or have to content yourself with those
