Brave New World

By Aldous Huxley QUOTATION: Anybody can be virtuous now. You can carry at least half your morality about in a bottle. Christianity without tears—that’s what soma is.
ATTRIBUTION: Aldous Huxley (1894–1963), British novelist. Mustapha Mond, in Brave New World, ch. 17 (1932).

QUOTATION: Happiness is a hard master—particularly other people’s happiness.
ATTRIBUTION: Aldous Huxley (1894–1963), British novelist. Mustapha Mond, in Brave New World, ch. 16 (1932).

QUOTATION: My dear young friend ... civilization has absolutely no need of nobility or heroism. These things are symptoms of political inefficiency. In a properly organized society like ours, nobody has any opportunities for being noble or heroic. Conditions have got to be thoroughly unstable before the occasion can arise.
ATTRIBUTION: Aldous Huxley (1894–1963), British novelist. Mustapha Mond, in Brave New World, ch. 17 (1932).

QUOTATION: 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.
ATTRIBUTION: Aldous Huxley (1894–1963), British novelist. Mustapha Mond, in Brave New World, ch. 17 (1932).

QUOTATION: Classic remorse, as all the moralists are agreed, is a most undesirable sentiment. If you have behaved badly, repent, make what amends you can and address yourself to the task of behaving better next time. On no account brood over your wrongdoing. ROLLING IN THE MUCK IS NOT THE BEST WAY OF GETTING CLEAN.
ATTRIBUTION: Aldous Huxley (1894–1963), British author. Brave New World, introduction to 1946 edition (1932).
