ANATHEMA

 

“The dreamer whose dreams are non-utilitarian
has no place in this world.
In this world the poet is anathema,
the thinker a fool, the artist an escapist,
the man of vision a criminal.”

 

~ Henry Miller ~

A MOST FITTING TWIST OF FATE

 

“The Humanity of men and women
is inversely proportional to their Numbers.
A Crowd is no more human than
an Avalanche or a Whirlwind.
A rabble of men and women stands lower
in the scale of moral and intellectual being
than a herd of Swine or of Jackals.”

 

~ Aldous Huxley ~
