Famous quotes containing the words huxley and/or leonard:

    Uncontrolled, the hunger and thirst after God may become an obstacle, cutting off the soul from what it desires. If a man would travel far along the mystic road, he must learn to desire God intensely but in stillness, passively and yet with all his heart and mind and strength.
    —Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    The purpose of population is not ultimately peopling earth. It is to fill heaven.
