Prophecy
Engrave this Quote The business of a seer is to see; and if he involves himself in the kind of God-eclipsing activities which make seeing impossible, he betrays the trust which his fellows have tacitly placed in him.

Proverbial Wisdom

Reading
Engrave this Quote A bad book is as much of a labor to write as a good one; it comes as sincerely from the author's soul.

-Aldous Huxley
Engrave this Quote Human contacts have been so highly valued in the past only because reading was not a common accomplishment.... The world, you must remember, is only just becoming literate. As reading becomes more and more habitual and widespread, an ever-increasing number of people will discover that books will give them all the pleasures of social life and none of its intolerable tedium.

Recognition
Engrave this Quote To his dog, every man is Napoleon; hence the constant popularity of dogs.

-Aldous Huxley
Reform, Correction
Engrave this Quote The amelioration of the world cannot be achieved by sacrifices in moments of crisis; it depends on the efforts made and constantly repeated during the humdrum, uninspiring periods, which separate one crisis from another, and of which normal lives mainly consist.

-Aldous Huxley
Religion
Engrave this Quote You never see animals going through the absurd and often horrible fooleries of magic and religion. Dogs do not ritually urinate in the hope of persuading heaven to do the same and send down rain. Asses do not bray a liturgy to cloudless skies. Nor do cats attempt, by abstinence from cat's meat, to wheedle the feline spirits into benevolence. Only man behaves with such gratuitous folly. It is the price he has to pay for being intelligent but not, as yet, quite intelligent enough.

-Aldous Huxley
Engrave this Quote But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.

Sacrifice
Engrave this Quote There's only one effectively redemptive sacrifice, the sacrifice of self-will to make room for the knowledge of God.

Science
Engrave this Quote Science has explained nothing; the more we know the more fantastic the world becomes and the profounder the surrounding darkness.

-Aldous Huxley
Engrave this Quote We are living now, not in the delicious intoxication induced by the early successes of science, but in a rather grisly morning-after, when it has become apparent that what triumphant science has done hitherto is to improve the means for achieving unimproved or actually deteriorated ends.

Silence
Engrave this Quote Silence is as full of potential wisdom and wit as the unshown marble of great sculpture. The silent bear no witness against themselves.

Society
Engrave this Quote To associate with other like-minded people in small, purposeful groups is for the great majority of men and women a source of profound psychological satisfaction. Exclusiveness will add to the pleasure of being several, but at one; and secrecy will intensify it almost to ecstasy.

Solitude
Engrave this Quote The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude.

Spirituality
Engrave this Quote Pure Spirit, one hundred degrees proof -- that's a drink that only the most hardened contemplation-guzzlers indulge in. Bodhisattvas dilute their Nirvana with equal parts of love and work.

Talent
Engrave this Quote There is no substitute for talent. Industry and all the virtues are of no avail.

Engrave this Quote Your true traveler finds boredom rather agreeable than painful. It is the symbol of his liberty -- his excessive freedom. He accepts his boredom, when it comes, not merely philosophically, but almost with pleasure.

Truth
Engrave this Quote Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth. By simply not mentioning certain subjects... totalitarian propagandists have influenced opinion much more effectively than they could have by the most eloquent denunciations.

Tyranny
