" Aldous Huxley (Crome Yellow)

"Universal education has created an immense class of what I may call the New Stu pid, hungering for certainty yet unable to find it in the traditional myths and their rationalizations." Aldous Huxley "When one individual comes into intimate contact with another, she or he, of cours e, as the case may be must almost inevitably receive or inflict suffering." Aldous Huxley (Crome Yellow) "Give us this day our daily Faith, but deliver us, dear God, from Belief." Aldous Huxley (Island)

Aldous Huxley (Crome Yellow) "Embraced, the lovers desperately try to fuse their insulated ecstasies into a s ingle self-transcendence; in vain."

Aldous Huxley (Crome Yellow) "Sex can be used either for self-affirmation or for self-transcendence either to intensify the ego and consolidate the social persona by some kind of conspicuou s embarkation and heroic conquest, or else to annihilate the persona and transcend the ego in an obscure rapture of sensuality, a frenzy of romantic passion, more creditably, in the mutual charity of the perfect marriage." Aldous Huxley (The Devils of Loudun
