Armand River Phoenix
(a painter in Picture of Dorian Gray, by Oscar Wilde)
Actually the closest description I ever found of what I call a Soulcatcher, and of the particuliar effect these two persons have on me.
Though, for the balance, I also agree that... :
" There is no such thing as a good influence, Mr Gray. All influence is immoral – immoral from the scientific point of view. [...]
Because to influence a person is to give him one's own soul. He does not think his natural thoughts, or burn his natural passions. [...]
He becomes an echo of someone else's music, an actor of a part that has not been written for him. The aim of life is self-development."
