Quote Bullet

The amelioration of the world cannot be achieved by sacrifices in moments of crisis; it depends on the efforts made and constantly repeated during the humdrum, uninspiring periods, which separate one crisis from another, and of which normal lives mainly consist.
~ Aldous Huxley - [Reform]

Quote Bullet

You never see animals going through the absurd and often horrible fooleries of magic and religion. Dogs do not ritually urinate in the hope of persuading heaven to do the same and send down rain. Asses do not bray a liturgy to cloudless skies. Nor do cats attempt, by abstinence from cat's meat, to wheedle the feline spirits into benevolence. Only man behaves with such gratuitous folly. It is the price he has to pay for being intelligent but not, as yet, quite intelligent enough.
~ Aldous Huxley - [Religion]

Quote Bullet

Classic remorse, as all the moralists are agreed, is a most undesirable sentiment. If you have behaved badly, repent, make what amends you can and address yourself to the task of behaving better next time. On no account brood over your wrongdoing. ROLLING IN THE MUCK IS NOT THE BEST WAY OF GETTING CLEAN.
~ Aldous Huxley - [Repentance]

Quote Bullet

Science has ''explained'' nothing; the more we know the more fantastic the world becomes and the profounder the surrounding darkness.
~ Aldous Huxley - [Science and Scientists]

Quote Bullet

We are living now, not in the delicious intoxication induced by the early successes of science, but in a rather grisly morning-after, when it has become apparent that what triumphant science has done hitherto is to improve the means for achieving unimproved or actually deteriorated ends.
~ Aldous Huxley - [Science and Scientists]

Those who believe that they are exclusively in the right are generally those who achieve something.
~ Aldous Huxley - [Self-confidence]

Quote Bullet

Man is an intelligence, not served by, but in servitude to his organs.
~ Aldous Huxley - [Intelligence and Intellectuals]

Quote Bullet

Science and art are only too often a superior kind of dope, possessing this advantage over booze and morphia: that they can be indulged in with a good conscience and with the conviction that, in the process of indulging, one is leading the ''higher life.''
~ Aldous Huxley - [Intelligence and Intellectuals]

Quote Bullet

A life-worshipper's philosophy is comprehensive. He is at one moment a positivist and at another a mystic: now haunted by the thought of death and now a Dionysian child of nature; now a pessimist and now, with a change of lover or liver or even the weather, an exuberant believer that God's in his heaven and all's right with the world.
~ Aldous Huxley - [Life, Lust For]

People will insist on treating the mons Veneris as though it were Mount Everest. Too silly!

Quote Bullet

Man approaches the unattainable truth through a succession of errors.
~ Aldous Huxley - [Mistakes]

Quote Bullet

Morality is always the product of terror; its chains and strait-waistcoats are fashioned by those who dare not trust others, because they dare not trust themselves, to walk in liberty.
~ Aldous Huxley - [Morality]

 

Report Error

Quote Bullet

The quality of moral behavior varies in inverse ratio to the number of human beings involved.
~ Aldous Huxley - [Morality]

Quote Bullet

It takes two to make a murder. There are born victims, born to have their throats cut, as the cut-throats are born to be hanged.
~ Aldous Huxley - [Murder]
