Aldous Huxley Quotes

Who was Aldous Huxley?

Apart from having a very unusual first name, Aldous Huxley is known for his science fiction classic Brave New World. This book describes a very dystopian future in which people go to feelies instead of movies and people are bread in laboratories. Although it was written in 1932 it is still relevant today. Huxley was nominated seven times for the Nobel Prize but won as many as you and me combined, which is nada.

Born July 26, 1894
Died November 22, 1963
Aged 69 years old
