Harper Lee
“Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason for us not to try to win.”
Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

Aldous Huxley
“-make them lose their faith in happiness as the Sovereign Good and take to believing instead, that the goal was somewhere beyond, somewhere outside the present human sphere; that the purpose of life was not the maintenance of well-being...”
Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
