Quotes

Hope is a bad thing. It means that you are not what you want to be. It means that part of you is dead, if not all of you. It means that you entertain illusions. It's a sort of spiritual clap, I should say.


Miller, Henry on Hope

Sin, guilt, neurosis --they are one and the same, the fruit of the tree of knowledge.


Miller, Henry on Knowledge

Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.


Miller, Henry on Life and Living

Obscenity is a cleansing process, whereas pornography only adds to the murk.


Miller, Henry on Obscenity
