Aldous Huxley

Consciousness is only possible through change; change is only possible through movement.

Experience is a matter of sensibility and intuition, of seeing and hearing the significant things, of paying attention at the right moments, of understanding and co-ordinating. Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.

From Text and Pretexts, 1932.
