Henry Miller

A man writes to throw off the poison which he has accumulated because of his false way of life. He is trying to recapture his innocence, yet all he succeeds in doing (by writing) is to inoculate the world with a virus of his disillusionment. No man would set a word down on paper if he had the courage to live out what he believed in. - Henry Miller

Art teaches nothing, except the significance of life. - Henry Miller

The real leader has no need to lead -- he is content to point the way. - Henry Miller
