Jung, Letters.

William Golding
b. 9-19-1911; Cornwall, England
d. 6-19-1993; England (heart failure)

Novelist, poet and playwright William Golding, most remembered for his novel Lord of the Flies, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1983 for “for his novels which, with the perspicuity of realistic narrative art and the diversity and universality of myth, illuminate the human condition in the world of today.”

Golding taught English and Philosophy as well as serving as a writer-in-residence. He also commanded a land craft in the invasion of Normandy on D-Day and recommended that James Lovelock call his theory Gaia after the Greek goddess of the Earth.

William Golding quotes ~
• “We need more humanity, more care, more love. There are those who expect a political system to produce that; and others who expect the love to produce the system. My own faith is that the truth of the future lies between the two and we shall behave humanly and a bit humanely, stumbling along, haphazardly generous and gallant, foolishly and meanly wise until the rape of our planet is seen to be the preposterous folly that it is.” ~ Nobel Lecture, Dec. 7, 1983
• “Before the Second World War I believed in the perfectibility of social man; that a correct structure of society would produce goodwill; and that therefore you could remove all social ills by a reorganisation of society ... but after the war I did not because I was unable to. I had discovered what one man could do to another ... I must say that anyone who moved through those years without understanding that man produces evil as a bee produces honey must have been blind or wrong in the head.”
• “Sleep is when all the unsorted stuff comes flying out as from a dustbin upset in a high wind.”
• “Consider a man riding a bicycle. Whoever he is, we can say three things about him. We know he got on the bicycle and started to move. We know that at some point he will stop and get off. Most important of all, we know that if at any point between the beginning and the end of his journey he stops moving and does not get off the bicycle he will fall off it. That is a metaphor for the journey through life of any living thing, and I think of any society of living things.”
• “Childhood is a disease – a sickness that you grow out of.”
