More From William S. Burroughs
- "Most of the trouble in this world has been caused by folks who can’t mind their own business, because they have no business of their own to mind, any more than a smallpox virus has."
- "Desperation is the raw material of drastic change. Only those who can leave behind everything they have ever believed in can hope to escape."
- "Artists to my mind are the real architects of change, and not the political legislators who implement change after the fact."
