Famous quotes containing the word huxley:

    The chess-board is the world; the pieces are the phenomena of the universe; the rules of the game are what we call the laws of Nature. The player on the other side is hidden from us. We know that his play is always fair, just, and patient. But also we know, to our cost, that he never overlooks a mistake, or makes the smallest allowance for ignorance.
    —Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–1895)

    Science and literature are not two things, but two sides of one thing.
    —Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    Most vices ... demand considerable self-sacrifices. There is no greater mistake than to suppose that a vicious life is a life of uninterrupted pleasure. It is a life almost as wearisome and painful—if strenuously led—as Christian’s in The Pilgrim’s Progress.
    —Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)
