John F kennedy died November 22, 1963, the same day as C.S. Lewis and Aldous Huxley.

Aldous Huxley wrote some poetry, most of it not very good. But I did like this one:

             Complaint

I have tried to remember the familiar places, -
      The pillared gloom of the beechwoods, the towns by the sea, -
I have tried to people the past with dear known faces,
      But you were haunting me.

Like a remorse, insistent, pitiless,
      You have filled my spirit, you were ever at hand;
You have mocked my gods with your new loveliness:
      Broken the old shrines stand.

A C. S. Lewis quote:

"Consciousness is either inexplicable illusion, or else revelation."
