- His thoughts against the society's culture
"Ashamed, now that the effects of the soma had worn off, of the weakness he had displayed that morning in the hotel, he went out of his way to show himself strong and unorthodox. 'What a wonderfully intimate relationship,' he said, deliberately outrageous. 'And what an intensity of feeling it must be generate! I often think one may have missed something in not having had a mother. An perhaps you've missed something in not being a mother, Lenina. Imagine yourself sitting there with a little baby of your own...'" (Huxley 111-112)
- His Plan for 'Success'
- His Arrogance While at the Top
" Success went fizzily to Bernard's head, and in the process completely reconciled him ( as any good intoxicant should do) to a world which, up till the he had found very unsatisfactory. In so far as it recognized him as important, the order of things was good. but, reconciled by his success, he yet refused to forego the privilege of criticizing this order. For the fact that criticizing heightened his sense of importance, made him feel larger. Moreover, he did genuinely believe that there were things to criticize. ( At the same time, he genuinely liked being a success and having all the girls he wanted.) Before those who now, for the sake of the Savage, paid their court to him, Bernard would parade a carping unorthodoxy. He was politely listened to.But behind his back people shook their heads... Meanwhile, however, there was the first Savage; they were polite. And because they were polite, Bernard felt positively gigantic- gigantic and at the same time light with elation, lighter than air." (Huxley 157)
