"... that there is no form of contemplation, even the most quietistic, which is without its ethical values. Half at least of all morality is negative and consists in keeping out of mischief. ... The one-sided contemplative leaves undone many things that he ought to do; but to make up for it, he refrains from doing a host of things he ought not to do. The sum of evil, Pascal remarked, would be much diminished if men could only learn to sit quietly in their rooms."
BONUS: DID YOU KNOW? The famous rock group, The Doors, got the inspiration for their name from the Aldous Huxley book, The Doors of Perception.
