H.G. Wells Quote

“This simple seeming unity –the self! Who can trace its reintegration as morning after morning we awaken, the flux and confluence of its countless factors interweaving, rebuilding, the dim first stirrings of the soul, the growth and synthesis of the unconscious to the subconscious, the subconscious to dawning consciousness, until at last we recognise ourselves again.” ~ When the Sleeper Wakes, 1899

Oh I’ve been having trouble sleeping… and when I do I find myself dreaming and disoriented upon waking. I came across this quote from one of my favorite writers: HG Wells and thought it was perfect. Finding your self once more as you slowly throw off the veil of sleep.

  1. I got about halfway through his book “The War Of The Worlds”. I’ve trying to read that because it’s one the “classics”. Its nothing but a description of events. There’s no real setting. The stakes are obvious – survive or die but that’s pretty much the same as now. And some of the terms used in the nineteenth century are baffling.

    I saw a film clip of when he visited America and he seemed like somebody’s kind old grandfather. I do like the quote.

    1. The Time Machine is my favorite and The Invisible Man is pretty great too. It is amazing how many things Wells correctly predicted about the future. From technology to oppression and disease!
