Quotes by Aldous Huxley :

A child-like man
A child-like man is not a man whose development has been arrested; on the contrary, he is a man who has given himself a chance of continuing to develop long after most adults have muffled themselves in the cocoon of middle-aged habit and convention.
Aldous Huxley | men and women

A modern war in a democracy
A democracy which makes or even effectively prepares for modern, scientific war must necessarily cease to be democratic. No country can be really well prepared for modern war unless it is governed by a tyrant, at the head of a highly trained and perfectly obedient bureaucracy.
Aldous Huxley | politics

A rumor
A belief in hell and the knowledge that every ambition is doomed to frustration at the hands of a skeleton have never prevented the majority of human beings from behaving as though death were no more than an unfounded rumor.

A walk among the mountains
My father considered a walk among the mountains as the equivalent of churchgoing.

Cynical realism

In a pragmatic way
Dream in a pragmatic way.

Looking ridiculous
It was one of those evenings when men feel that truth, goodness and beauty are one. In the morning, when they commit their discovery to paper, when others read it written there, it looks wholly ridiculous.
Aldous Huxley | truth

Make your choice
God isn't compatible with machinery and scientific medicine and universal happiness. You must make your choice. Our civilization has chosen machinery and medicine and happiness.

May be it is hell
Maybe this world is another planet's hell.
Aldous Huxley | religion

More interesting
An intellectual is a person who's found one thing that's more interesting than sex.
Aldous Huxley | intelligence

Servitude
Man is an intelligence in servitude to his organs.
Aldous Huxley | intelligence

Succession of errors
Man approaches the unattainable truth through a succession of errors.
Aldous Huxley | truth

Technological progress
Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards.
Aldous Huxley | technology

They are dead
Consistency is contrary to nature, contrary to life. The only completely consistent people are dead.
Aldous Huxley | death

They do not cease to exist
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
Aldous Huxley | truth

They have to be paid for
Like every other good thing in this world, leisure and culture have to be paid for. Fortunately, however, it is not the leisured and the cultured who have to pay.
Aldous Huxley | culture

To travel
To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.
