Brave New World

“The mockery made him feel an outsider; and feeling an outsider he behaved like one, which increased the prejudice against him and intensified the contempt and hostility aroused by his physical defects. Which in turn increased his sense of being alien and alone. A chronic fear of being slighted made him avoid his equals, made him stand, where his inferiors were concerned, self-consciously on his dignity.”
– Aldous Huxley, Brave New World,

    I loved this book. One of the few I read for school that I enjoyed. 1984 was also exceptional.

    A guy who goes in search of the brave new world can’t expect a better support from his people because the normals hardly support the abnormals…….it’s a kind of a ‘Text book’ rule that ever exists in the society.
