Quotable Friday (45)
I've quoted from CS Lewis many times on this blog before, so I thought maybe it was Aldous Huxley's turn. I read Brave New World in my teens and was really taken with it. I heard it on the radio again recently and was still absorbed by his dystopian vision of the future.
Here is a quotation appropriate for a writer, taken from that novel:
"Words can be like X-rays if you use them properly - they'll go through anything. You read and you're pierced."
I hope the words I write one day will have the same piercing effect that his did. I can dream, right?!
