Top 10 Best Brave New World Quotes

#10

 

The greatest triumphs of propaganda have been accomplished, not by doing something, but by refraining from doing. Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth.

--ALDOUS HUXLEY, Brave New World, Preface

 
#9
 

The optimum population is modeled on the iceberg — eight ninths below the water line, one ninth above.

--ALDOUS HUXLEY, Brave New World, Chapter 16

 
#8
 

Words can be like X-rays if you use them properly -- they’ll go through anything. You read and you’re pierced.

--ALDOUS HUXLEY, Brave New World, Chapter 4

 
#7
 

Actual happiness always looks pretty squalid in comparison with the over-compensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn't nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand.

--ALDOUS HUXLEY, Brave New World, Chapter 16

 
#6
 

Wheels must turn steadily, but cannot turn untended. There must be men to tend them, men as steady as the wheels upon their axles, sane men, obedient men, stable in contentment.

--ALDOUS HUXLEY, Brave New World, Chapter 3

 
#5
 

The greater a man's talents, the greater his power to lead astray.

--ALDOUS HUXLEY, Brave New World, Chapter 10

 
#4
 

Chronic remorse, as all the moralists are agreed, is a most undesirable sentiment. If you have behaved badly, repent, make what amends you can and address yourself to the task of behaving better next time. On no account brood over your wrong-doing. Rolling in the muck is not the best way of getting clean.

--ALDOUS HUXLEY, Brave New World, Foreward

 
#3
 

That is the secret of happiness and virtue--liking what you've got to do. All conditioning aims at that: making people like their inescapable social destiny.

--ALDOUS HUXLEY, Brave New World, Chapter 1

 
#2
 

The Gods are just. No doubt. But their code of law is dictated, in the last resort, by the people who organize society; providence takes its cue from men.

--ALDOUS HUXLEY, Brave New World, Chapter 17

 
#1
 

Reality, however utopian, is something from which people feel the need of taking pretty frequent holidays.

--ALDOUS HUXLEY, Brave New World, Preface
