Literary Birthday
Happy Birthday, Aldous Huxley, born 26 July 1894, died 22 November 1963
15 Aldous Huxley Quotes
The propagandist’s purpose is to make one set of people forget that certain other sets of people are human.
Every man’s memory is his private literature.
There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.
The proper study of mankind is books.
That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons that history has to teach.
A bad book is as much of a labor to write as a good one, it comes as sincerely from the author’s soul.
Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities.
Experience is not what happens to you; it’s what you do with what happens to you.
I wanted to change the world. But I have found that the only thing one can be sure of changing is oneself
The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude.
Maybe this world is another planet’s hell.
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards.
Hell isn’t merely paved with good intentions; it’s walled and roofed with them. Yes, and furnished too.
That all men are equal is a proposition which at ordinary times no sane individual has ever given his assent.
Huxley was an English writer, best known for his dystopian novel, Brave New World. He also edited the magazine Oxford Poetry. Huxley was a humanist, pacifist, and satirist, who was also well known for his advocacy and consumption of psychedelic drugs.
