Henry Miller Big Sur

Henry Miller at the Hotel Princess in Paris, France 1969

“Surely every one realizes, at some point along the way, that he is capable of living a far better life than the one he has chosen. What stays him, usually, is the fear of the sacrifices involved. (Even to relinquish his chains seems like a sacrifice.) yet everyone knows that nothing is accomplished without sacrifice.”
Henry Miller, Big Sur and Oranges of Hieronymus Bosch
