Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master During a conversation with Lord Henry, Dorian tells him that he has fallen in love with an actress named Sibyl Vane. Lord Henry then asks him about his relationship with her, and Dorian answers that for him she is "sacred". Lord Henry will then affirm this sentence about these deceptions that we call romance. If at first you deceive yourself by putting the one you love on a pedestal, you end up deceiving others when you are no longer under the influence of this illusion.
