Quotations 101: Henry Miller (tropic of capricorn, tropic of cancer)


“To walk in money through the night crowd, protected by money, lulled by money, dulled by money, the crowd itself a money, the breath money, no least single object anywhere that is not money, money, money everywhere and still not enough, and then no money or a little money or less money or more money, but money, always money, and if you have money or you don’t have money it is the money that counts and money makes money, but what makes money make money?”

“No man is great enough or wise enough for any of us to surrender our destiny to. The only way in which anyone can lead us is to restore to us the belief in our own guidance.”

“Take a good look at me. Now tell me, do you think I’m the sort of fellow who gives a fuck what happens once he’s dead? “

Henry and June: From the Unexpurgated Diary of Anaïs Nin (full title Henry and June: From A Journal of Love: the Unexpurgated Diary of Anaïs Nin (1931–1932)) is a 1986 book that is based upon material excerpted from the unpublished diaries of Anaïs Nin. It corresponds temporally to the first volume of Nin’s published diaries, written between October 1931 and October 1932, yet is radically different, in that that book begins with a description of the landscape of and around her home and never mentions her husband, whereas “Henry and June” begins with discussion of Nin’s sex life and is full of her struggles and passionate relationship with husband Hugo, and then, as the novel/memoir progresses, other lovers.

This, the first of currently four volumes of unexpurgated diaries, concentrates on her passionate involvement with the writer Henry Miller and his wife June Miller.

It is noteworthy that Nin’s source material —her diaries —was able to spawn two dramatically different narratives about the same time period, both widely read and praised. The expurgated diary reveals Nin the philosopher and amateur but astute psychologist. The unexpurgated diary reveals a woman breaking out into wild sexual discovery. It is introduced by her second—coterminous—husband.

A film based on the book was released in 1990.

Louis Armstrong: On the Sunny Side Of the Street

Who else could communicate so much, with a unique voice, and a trumpet.
Jazz has a liberating effect from the shadows of the other side of the street, the side of the sorrows prosecution and cold of the disconnect from the reality of world. How much money buys happiness: And what is happiness to star with?
How much more happiness can you buy today, how much will you pay tomorrow? and where is this magical place, outside of one’s soul, where happiness was ever for sale. Do you see what I mean? This reminds me of some passages from Henry Miller novels, which you can read @ http://www.henry-miller.com/narrative-literature/henry-miller-quotes.html.

It takes guts to independently think on your own and express in any way what you’re thinking about the Sunny Side Of The Street, that unique One Way Street known to us all as “Life”.
If happiness costed money, let me tell you: There would be very few, if any on that Sunny Side Of The Street…:

So put on a happy face…
