Through endless night the earth whirls toward a creation unknown.

--HENRY MILLER, Tropic of Cancer, Ch. 13

This is not a book. This is libel, slander, defamation of character. This is not a book, in the ordinary sense of the word. No, this is a prolonged insult, a gob of spit in the face of Art, a kick in the pants to God, Man, Destiny, Time, Love, Beauty ... what you will.

--HENRY MILLER, Tropic of Cancer, Ch. 1

Ah, the Germans! They take you all over like an omnibus. They give you indigestion. In the same night one cannot visit the morgue, the infirmary, the zoo, the signs of the zodiac, the limbos of philosophy, the caves of epistemology, the arcana of Freud and Stekel.... On the merry-go-round one doesn't get anywhere, whereas with the Germans one can go from Vega to Lope de Vega, all in one night, and come away as foolish as Parsifal.

--HENRY MILLER, Tropic of Cancer, Ch. 2

Do anything, but let it produce joy. Do anything, but let it yield ecstasy.

--HENRY MILLER, Tropic of Cancer, Ch. 13

 
#3
 

If any man ever dared to translate all that is in his heart, to put down what is really his experience, what is truly his truth, I think then the world would go to smash, that it would be blown to smithereens and no god, no accident, no will could ever again assemble the pieces, the atoms, the indestructible elements that have gone to make up the world.

--HENRY MILLER, Tropic of Cancer, Ch. 13

 
#2
 

The wallpaper with which the men of science have covered the world of reality is falling to tatters. The grand whorehouse which they have made of life requires no decoration; it is essential only that the drains function adequately.

--HENRY MILLER, Tropic of Cancer, Ch. 8

 
#1
 

I have found God, but he is insufficient.

--HENRY MILLER, Tropic of Cancer, Ch. 7
