Best Quotes by Henry Miller (Top 10)

  1. The one thing we can never get enough of is love. And the one thing we never give enough is love.
  2. A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition.
  3. Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.

  5. The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware.
  6. Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such
  7. One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.
  8. I have no money, no resources, no hopes. I am the happiest man alive.
  9. The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.
  10. If there is to be any peace it will come through being, not having.
