Here are the other sentences which refer to Lord Henry. Can you please check the tense choice?

1)Lord Henry is a symbol of hedonistic and decadent upper classes, despising the Victorian virtues of work and morals, generally associated with the middle classes.
2) Truth is regarded as an unnecessary and awkward obstacle to pleasure. Henry freely admits lying to his wife just as she lies to him, stating that in marriage secrets are absolutely necessary.
3) He provides us with several epigrams –short and clever sentences – which express his idea in an amusing way. Henry is the typical dandy. He speaks through paradox.
4) He tells Dorian that beauty matters more than anything else, it is a form of Genius. It is one of the great facts of the world, like sunlight or springtime.
5) He implores Dorian to enjoy his beauty because it won’t last forever. When youth goes, beauty will go with it. Once people grow old, they’ll degenerate into hideous puppets, tormented by the passions and temptations they were afraid to give in to.
6) Youth is depicted by Lord Henry as beautiful and divine, which makes those who have it unique. Old age, on the other hand, stands for physical and mental decadence. What only matters in life is being young and beautiful.
