Huxley on ancient wisdom

Aldous Huxley - from Wikipedia

The peoples of the West no longer share a literature and a system of ancient wisdom. All that they now have in common is science and information.
Aldous Huxley. The Olive Tree

There are so many quotes which hit the nail on the head, it's a wonder we manage to go wrong with such impressive ease.

Huxley never lets us down. One of the glories of our literature, although neglected now.

My son and I paid our respects at his grave only last Saturday.

SV - I like Huxley too. I've not read much of his this past few years and I need to revisit him.
