    9. Romance is the privilege of the rich, not the profession of the unemployed I read it in school back when I was in 6th standard I haven t reread it since then yet I am giving it 5 stars because it is the only story which has stuck with me I don t remember any other story I read for school, but I exactly remember reading it It is simply because it was the only story I enjoyed back then I still remember the whole plot and even some of the dialogues Though now I know it has some very inappropriate c [...]

    12. A story that everyone should read Alan, said Hughie seriously, you painters are a heartless lot An artist s heart is his head, replied Trevor and besides,our business is to realise the world as we see it,not to reform it as we know it.

    13. I arranged my thoughts on this short story into a haiku Despite social rules,A princely anomalyWill always draw friends.

    14. Hughie is in love wants to marry His current situation is such that he is not his girlfriend s father s choice for his daughter s husband Hughie goes to visit his painter friend who happens to be in the middle of a painting The model for the portrait, a lowly beggar man, looks as though he could use Hughie s one coin than he needs it, so he gives it to him, everything he has The beggar man is actually not a beggar at all He is a very wealthy baron who is dressed as a beggar for the painting Hug [...]

    15. The story is simple, yet hooks the reader in well even the title itself is enough to spark interest I would definitely recommend this to all audiences it is a story that will be remembered after reading once Kids will most likely enjoy the story most because of its simplicity Although the story is quite predictable, it is still enjoyable In addition, there weren t any villains included the story either, making the story feel innocent From the mischievious and cunning persona of Trevor, to the h [...]

    16. This is one of the most entertaining stories ever made Oscar Wilde has supplied me with some of the most bizarre and twisted images you could never imagine Diane The Model Millionaire came across as a very simple version of The Picture of Dorian Gray Take out the fragrant, descriptive language and the gothic horror element and you are left with a humorous observation of London society that nods in the direction of Austen s Pride and Prejudice The first line of the story is almost a parody of Aus [...]

    17. Easily one of my favorites What is the real essence of kindness What are its rewards This short tle is a delight.

    20. The Model Millionaire by Oscar WildeI wish I would be a model millionaire even if I have been reading positive psychology recently and it seems money do not have such a big impact on happiness You do not have to be a millionaire to be happy, the richest people are only slightly happier than the average person One must be above poverty to be happy, indeed poor, homeless inhabitants of Somalia, Burkina Fasso are unhappy But once we have our basic needs satisfied, every increase in annual income co [...]

    21. UNLESS one is wealthy there is no use in being a charming fellow Romance is the privilege of the rich, not the profession of the umemployed The poor should be practical and prosaic This is Wilde at his best You gotta love this man for the tricks he plays on your mind with his philosophical, often paradoxal, quotes.This story is merely a few pages long but I was quite intense His masterful prose, combined with silly cynical remarks on social injustice, is simply astonishing.A first theme in this [...]

    22. had so much fun while reading it it s one of the books i d want the whole world to read not for the story itself though it worths, but for the moral behind it I really enjoyed it.
