Fame
Engrave this Quote Fame is an illusive thing -- here today, gone tomorrow. The fickle, shallow mob raises its heroes to the pinnacle of approval today and hurls them into oblivion tomorrow at the slightest whim; cheers today, hisses tomorrow; utter forgetfulness in a few months.

-Henry Miller
Fashion
Engrave this Quote The new always carries with it the sense of violation, of sacrilege. What is dead is sacred; what is new, that is different, is evil, dangerous, or subversive.

Fate & Destiny
Engrave this Quote Every man has his own destiny: the only imperative is to follow it, to accept it, no matter where it leads him.

-Henry Miller, The Wisdom of the Heart
Engrave this Quote No man is great enough or wise enough for any of us to surrender our destiny to. The only way in which anyone can lead us is to restore to us the belief in our own guidance.

Fear
Engrave this Quote There is nothing strange about fear: no matter in what guise it presents itself it is something with which we are all so familiar that when a man appears who is without it we are at once enslaved by him.

Forgiveness
Engrave this Quote Remorse is impotence, it will sin again. Only repentance is strong, it can end everything.

Greatness & Great Things
Engrave this Quote The world isn't kept running because it's a paying proposition. (God doesn't make a cent on the deal.) The world goes on because a few men in every generation believe in it utterly, accept it unquestioningly; they underwrite it with their lives.

Growth
Engrave this Quote All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous, unpremeditated act without benefit of experience.

Heroes/Heroism
Engrave this Quote The ordinary man is involved in action, the hero acts. An immense difference.

History
Engrave this Quote History is the myth, the true myth, of man's fall made manifest in time.

-Henry Miller, Plexus, 1949
Hope
Engrave this Quote Hope is a bad thing. It means that you are not what you want to be. It means that part of you is dead, if not all of you. It means that you entertain illusions. It's a sort of spiritual clap, I should say.

Humanity
Engrave this Quote Man has demonstrated that he is master of everything -- except his own nature.

-Henry Miller
Engrave this Quote The man who is forever disturbed about the condition of humanity either has no problems of his own or has refused to face them.

Imagination
Engrave this Quote Imagination is the voice of daring. If there is anything Godlike about God it is that. He dared to imagine everything.

Innovation
Engrave this Quote No one asks you to throw Mozart out of the window. Keep Mozart. Cherish him. Keep Moses too, and Buddha and Lao Tzu and Christ. Keep them in your heart. But make room for the others, the coming ones, the ones who are already scratching on the window-panes.

Inspirational
Engrave this Quote I didn't have to think up so much as a comma or a semicolon; it was all given, straight from the celestial recording room. Weary, I would beg for a break, an intermission, time enough, let's say, to go to the toilet or take a breath of fresh air on the balcony. Nothing doing!

Integrity
Engrave this Quote I will never again go to people under false pretenses even if it is to give them the Holy Bible. I will never again sell anything, even if I have to starve. I am going home now and I will sit down and really write about people.

Knowledge
Engrave this Quote Sin, guilt, neurosis --they are one and the same, the fruit of the tree of knowledge.

Land
Engrave this Quote Topographically the country is magnificent -- and terrifying. Why terrifying? Because nowhere else in the world is the divorce between man and nature so complete. Nowhere have I encountered such a dull, monotonous fabric of life as here in America. Here boredom reaches its peak.

Leadership
Engrave this Quote The real leader has no need to lead -- he is content to point the way.

Letters (writing)
Engrave this Quote It does me good to write a letter which is not a response to a demand, a gratuitous letter, so to speak, which has accumulated in me like the waters of a reservoir.

Life
Engrave this Quote Life is constantly providing us with new funds, new resources, even when we are reduced to immobility. In life's ledger there is no such thing as frozen assets.

-Henry Miller
Engrave this Quote Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.

Madness
Engrave this Quote Madness is tonic and invigorating. It makes the sane more sane. The only ones who are unable to profit by it are the insane.
