Quote Bullet

Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth. By simply not mentioning certain subjects... totalitarian propagandists have influenced opinion much more effectively than they could have by the most eloquent denunciations.

Quote Bullet

Most vices demand considerable self-sacrifices. There is no greater mistake than to suppose that a vicious life is a life of uninterrupted pleasure. It is a life almost as wearisome and painful -- if strenuously led -- as Christian's in The Pilgrim's Progress.
~ Aldous Huxley - [Vice]

~ Aldous Huxley - [Vision]

~ Aldous Huxley - [War]

If it were not for the intellectual snobs who pay -- in solid cash -- the tribute which philistinism owes to culture, the arts would perish with their starving practitioners. Let us thank heaven for hypocrisy.
~ Aldous Huxley - [Patronage]

Speed provides the one genuinely modern pleasure.
~ Aldous Huxley - [Pleasure]

 

Report Error

Quote Bullet

Cant is always rather nauseating; but before we condemn political hypocrisy, let us remember that it is the tribute paid by men of leather to men of God, and that the acting of the part of someone better than oneself may actually commit one to a course of behavior perceptibly less evil than what would be normal and natural in an avowed cynic.
~ Aldous Huxley - [Politicians and Politics]
