Introspection is for the Weak
I was reading the greatest biography I have read last night, Aldous Huxley, and in it he has this quote, which I'll just paraphrase, "Introspection is the most worthless thing known to man. It's like slowly commiting suuicide by not obsorbing the things around you." That made me think about all the little introspective peices I write and well I guess everybody writes. I mean he wrote that quote to D.H. Lawrence though and if DH would have listened he may have lived past 44 and not been so miserable all the time. I'll have to mull on Aldous' adivce for a little while. By the way, for those who haven't, read anything of his. I highly recommend Point Counter Point, and of course Brave New World and BNW revisited. He was a visionary and a humble genius. Oh yeah and if you like crazy mixed homophobic weird edipus complexes read some DH Lawrence as well, the short stories and poetry are a great palce to start, as well as Sons and Lovers.
