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?”

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”.
