“Actual happiness always looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn't nearly so spectacular as instability.

Happiness is never grand.”
Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

“Words can be like X-rays if you use them properly -- they’ll go through anything. You read and you’re pierced.”
