"The perfect dictatorship would have the appearance of a democracy, but would basically be a prison without walls in which the prisoners woulld not even dream of escaping. It would essentially be a system of slavery where, through consumption and entertainment, the slaves would love their servitudes." ~ Aldous Huxley
Aldous Huxley on why he doesn't read reviews of his own work: "They’ve never had any effect on me, for the simple reason that I’ve never read them. I’ve never made a point of writing for any particular person or audience; I’ve simply tried to do the best job I could and let it go at that. The critics don’t interest me because they’re concerned with what’s past and done, while I’m concerned with what comes next."
