Henry Miller Quote: “There will be more calamities, more death, more despair. Not the slightest indication of a change anywhere. The cancer of our time is eating us away. Our heroes have killed themselves, or are killing themselves.”
Henry Miller Quote: “Better to separate than never to marry.”
Henry Miller Quote: “An artist earns the right to call himself a creator only when he admits to himself that he is but an instrument.”
Henry Miller Quote: “If the poet can no longer speak for society, but only for himself, then we are at the last ditch.”
Henry Miller Quote: “Instead of asking ‘How much damage will the work in question bring about?’ why not ask ‘How much good? How much joy?’”
Henry Miller Quote: “Music is a beautiful opiate, if you don’t take it too seriously.”
Henry Miller Quote: “Somehow the realization that nothing was to be hoped for had a salutary effect upon me. For weeks and months, for years, in fact, all my life I had been looking forward to something happening, some extrinsic event that would alter my life, and now suddenly, inspired by the absolute hopelessness of everything, I felt relieved, felt as though a great burden had been lifted from my shoulders.”
Henry Miller Quote: “I haven’t any allegiance, any responsibilities, any hatreds, any worries, any prejudices, any passion. I’m neither for nor against. I’m a neutral.”
Henry Miller Quote: “Art is only a means to life, the life more abundant. It merely points the way.”
Henry Miller Quote: “I shall be the wild park in the midst of the nightmare of perfection, the still, unshakeable dream in the midst of frenzied activity, the random shot on the white billiard table of logic, I shall know neither how to weep nor protest, but I shall be there always in absolute silence to receive and to restore.”
Henry Miller Quote: “One has to be a lowbrow, a bit of a murderer, to be a politician, ready and willing to see people sacrificed, slaughtered, for the sake of an idea, whether a good one or a bad one.”
Henry Miller Quote: “The Earth is a paradise, the only one we will ever know. We will realize it the moment we open our eyes. We don’t have to make it a paradise – it is one. We have only to make ourselves fit to inhabit it. The man with the gun, the man with murder in his heart, cannot possibly recognize paradise even when he is shown it.”
Henry Miller Quote: “There is only one thing which interests me vitally now, and that is the recording of all that which is omitted in books.”
Henry Miller Quote: “Man will change nothing of his final destiny, which is to return sooner or later to the unconscious and the formless.”
Henry Miller Quote: “Everybody goes the wrong way, everything is confused, chaotic, disorderly. But nobody is ever lost or hurt, nothing is stolen, no blows are exchanged. It is a kind of ferment which is created by reason of the fact that for a Greek every event, no matter how stale, is always unique. He is always doing the same thing for the first time: he is curious, avidly curious, and experimental. He experiments for the sake of experimenting, not to establish a better or more efficient way of doing things.”
Henry Miller Quote: “And what is the potential man, after all? Is he not the sum of all that is human? Divine, in other words?”
Henry Miller Quote: “The concert is a polite form of self induced torture.”
Henry Miller Quote: “You have to be wiped out as a human being in order to be born again an individual.”
Henry Miller Quote: “Words are loneliness. I left a couple of words for you on the tablecloth last night – you covered them with your elbows.”
Henry Miller Quote: “The secret to a happy life is having lots of interests. Interests are ammunition against despair.”
Henry Miller Quote: “It was a crushing defeat, but it put iron in my backbone and sulphur in my blood. I knew at least what it was to fail. I knew what it was to attempt something big.”
Henry Miller Quote: “Reality is not protected or defended by laws, proclamations, ukases, cannons and armadas. Reality is that which is sprouting all the time out of death and disintegration.”
Henry Miller Quote: “I had a microscopic eye for the blemish, for the grain of ugliness which to me constituted the sole beauty of the object.”
Henry Miller Quote: “The Greek knows how to live with his rags: they don’t utterly degrade and befoul him as in other countries I have visited.”
Henry Miller 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.”
Henry Miller Quote: “I want to prevent as many men as possible from pretending that they have to do this or that because they must earn a living. It is not true. One can starve to death – it is much better. Every man who voluntarily starves to death jams another cog in the automatic process. I would rather see a man take a gun and kill his neighbor, in order to get the food he needs, than keep up the automatic process by pretending that he has to earn a living.”
Henry Miller Quote: “Everything hinges on how you look at things.”
Henry Miller Quote: “I had learned to harness ignorance with presumption. I was ready to become an unacknowledged watercolorist.”
Henry Miller Quote: “For one crime which is expiated in prison ten thousand are committed thoughtlessly by those who condemn.”
Henry Miller Quote: “In her tight-fitting Persian dress, with turban to match, she looked ravishing.”
Henry Miller Quote: “I had to learn to think, feel, and see in a totally new fashion, in an uneducated way, in my own way, which is the hardest thing in the world. I had to throw myself into the current, knowing that I would probably sink.”
Henry Miller Quote: “The worst sin that can be committed against the artist is to take him at his word, to see in his work a fulfillment instead of an horizon.”
Henry Miller Quote: “In the egocentric prism the helpless victim is walled in by the very light which he refracts. The ego dies in its own glass cage...”
Henry Miller Quote: “I even like your deceit, your treachery. It seems aristocratic to me.”
Henry Miller Quote: “Suffering is futile, my intelligence told me over and over, but I went on suffering voluntarily.”
Henry Miller Quote: “The world around me is dissolving leaving here and there spots of time. The world is a cancer eating itself away.”
Henry Miller Quote: “There is nothing in itself which is wrong or evil not even murder.”
Henry Miller Quote: “We came together in a dance of death and so quickly was I sucked down into the vortex that when I came to the surface again I couldn’t recognize the world. When I found myself loose the music had ceased; the carnival was over and I had been picked clean.”
Henry Miller Quote: “I reached out for something to attach myself to – and I found nothing. But in reaching out, in the effort to grasp, to attach myself, left high and dry as I was, I nevertheless found something I had not looked for – myself.”
Henry Miller Quote: “To make absolute, unconditional surrender to the woman one loves is to break every bond save the desire not to lose her, which is the most terrible bond of all.”
Henry Miller Quote: “It’s like saying to a drowning man: What a pity, what a pity! If you had only let me teach you how to swim! Everybody wants to right the world, nobody wants help his neighbor. They want to make a man of you without taking your body into consideration. It’s all cockeyed.”
Henry Miller Quote: “It’s the pleasure of picking up the brush and seeing what happens.”
Henry Miller Quote: “There will be more calamities, more death, more despair. Not the slightest indication of a change anywhere. The cancer of time is eating us away. Our heroes have killed themselves, or are killing themselves. The hero, then, is not Time, but Timelessness. We must get in step, a lock step, toward the prison of death. There is no escape. The weather will not change.”
Henry Miller Quote: “There are people who cannot resist the desire to get into a cage with wild beasts and be mangled.”
Henry Miller Quote: “Dondequiera que fuese fomentaba la discordia: no porque fuera idealista, sino porque era como un reflector que revelaba la estupidez y futilidad de todo.”
Henry Miller Quote: “History is the myth, the true myth, of man’s fall made manifest in time.”
Henry Miller Quote: “I was lonely amidst a world of things lit up by phosphorescent flashes of cruelty. I was delirious with an energy which could not be unleashed except in the service of death and futility.”
Henry Miller Quote: “To live without killing is a thought which could electrify the world, if men were only capable of staying awake long enough to let the idea soak in.”
Henry Miller Quote: “Leave out the parts that readers tend to skip.”
Henry Miller Quote: “Ideas are living creatures, active and activating, like flowers.”
