A Quote by Aldous Leonard Huxley on writing, hurt, upset, good writing, and anger and writing

"I know quite well that one needs ridiculous, mad situations like that; one can't write really well about anything else. WHy was that old fellow such a marvellous propaganda technician? Becuase he had so many insane, excruciating things to get excited about. You've got to be hurt and upset; otherwise you can't htink of the really good, penetrating, X-rayish phrases."

Aldous Huxley (1894 - 1963)
