Henry Miller

  • The study of crime begins with the knowledge of oneself.

  • Any genuine philosophy leads to action and from action back again to wonder, to the enduring face of mystery.

  • What distinguishes the majority of men from the few is their ability to act accordingly to their beliefs.

  • One of the reasons why so few us ever act, instead of react, is because we are continually stifling our deepest impulses.

  • The only peace, the only security, is in fulfillment.

  • The ordinary man is involved in action, the hero acts. An immense difference.

  • All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous unpremeditated act without benefit of experience.

  • Destiny is what you are supposed to do in life. Fate is what kicks you in the ass to make you do it.

  • There is something healthy and invigorating about direct action.

  • Example moves the world more that doctrine.

  • Life, as it is called, is for most of us one long postponement.

  • We create our fate every day...most of the ills we suffer from are directly traceable to our own behavior.

  • If there is to be any peace it will come through being, not having.

  • Sex is one of the nine reasons for reincarnation. The other eight are unimportant.

  • The one thing we can never get enough of is love. And the one thing we never give enough of is love.
