Aldous Huxley
“The surest way to work up a crusade in favor of some good cause is to promise people they will have a chance of maltreating someone. To be able to destroy with good conscience, to be able to behave badly and call your bad behavior 'righteous indignation' — this is the height of psychological luxury, the most delicious of moral treats.”
Aldous Huxley, Crome Yellow

Gustave Flaubert
“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”
Gustave Flaubert

George Orwell

George Orwell

George Orwell
