Some Favorite Aldous Huxley Quotes


Aldous Huxley Quotes - Oct 15

The most distressing thing that can happen to a prophet is to be proved wrong. The next most distressing thing is to be proved right.
Aldous Huxley

The most valuable of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it has to be done, whether you like it or not.
(This one keeps me going quite frequently when I don't feel like keeping going!  And also, the mighty help of God and His dear Angels!  deexxoo)

Googling Aldous Huxley, I found this one:
Late in his life Huxley remarked, "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.'"  (I think he should have congratulated himself for that conclusion!)
What an interesting life he led.  I didn't know that he suffered near blindness, yet finished college and became a prolific writer, with one poor eye.  In his book credits is not mentioned the one that I particularly liked, "You are Not the Target" in which he was a co-author with his wife, Laura Archera Huxley.  That one got me through some tough times in the late sixties.  Needing to read it again, I've just ordered an old used copy I found on the internet for a dollar!
