Epigraph to Huxley's Brave New World:

"Utopias appear to be a good deal more realizable[1] than was previously thought. And today we are faced with an alarming question of a different nature: How to avoid their complete realization? Utopias are realizable. Life moves towards utopias. And perhaps a new century is beginning, a century when intellectuals and the cultured class will dream of ways of avoiding utopias and of returning to a non-utopic society, less "perfect" and more "free."


—Nicholas Berdiaeff, translated from the French



[1] Realizable = able to become a reality
