Henry Miller Quotations

-What does it matter how one comes by the truth so long as one pounces upon it and lives by it?

-Living apart and at peace with myself, I came to realize more vividly the meaning of the doctrine of acceptance. To refrain from giving advice, to refrain from meddling in the affairs of others, to refrain, even though the motives be the highest, from tampering with another’s way of life – so simple, yet so difficult for an active spirit. Hands off!

-One’s destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.

-To the man whose senses are alive and alert there is not even the need to stir from one’s threshold.

-Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.

-Develop interest in life as you see it; in people, things, literature, music – the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.
