I, too, started Brave New World, yesterday.
"Chronic remorse, as all the moralists are agreed, is a most undesired sentiment. If you have behaved badly, repent, make what amends you can and address yourself to the task of behaving better next time. On no account brood over your wrongdoing. Rolling in the muck is not the best way of getting clean."
The first paragraph of the foreword in the copy of Brave New World that I'm currently reading, in reference to "changing" the book.

I have 1984, waiting to be read immediately after Brave New World.
I find a lot of the replies in this thread almost frighteningly coincidental...
