Aldous Huxley and D.H. Lawrence


“It is a bit embarrassing to have been concerned with the human problem all one's life and find at the end that one has no more to offer by way of advice than 'Try to be a little kinder.”
 Aldous Huxley, Moksha: Writings on Psychedelics & the Visionary Experience

“An intellectual is a person who has discovered something more interesting than sex.”

"I'm afraid of losing my obscurity. Genuineness only thrives in the dark. Like celery."

"Habit converts luxurious enjoyments into dull and daily necessities."

"Single-mindedness is all very well in cows or baboons; in an animal claiming to belong to the same species as Shakespeare it is simply disgraceful."

"Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities."

"The trouble with fiction… is that it makes too much sense. Reality never makes sense."

"Never give children a chance of imagining that anything exists in isolation. Make it plain from the very beginning that all living is relationship. Show them relationships in the woods, in the fields, in the ponds and streams, in the village and in the country around it. Rub it in."

"To aspire to be superhuman is a most discreditable admission that you lack the guts, the wit, the moderating judgment to be successfully and consummately human."
 Aldous Huxley
