Aldous Huxley on why he doesn't read reviews of his own work: "They’ve never had any effect on me, for the simple reason that I’ve never read them. I’ve never made a point of writing for any particular person or audience; I’ve simply tried to do the best job I could and let it go at that. The critics don’t interest me because they’re concerned with what’s past and done, while I’m concerned with what comes next."
Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) was an English writer and philosopher. He was best known for his novels and for non-fiction books. Huxley was a humanist, pacifist, and satirist. He later became interested in spiritual subjects such as parapsychology and philosophical mysticism, in particular, Universalism.
