William S. Burroughs Quotes

If you weren't surprised by your life you wouldn't be alive.

Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.

Artists to my mind are the real architects of change, and not the political legislators who implement change after the fact.

Desperation is the raw material of drastic change. Only those who can leave behind everything they have ever believed in can hope to escape.

In deep sadness there is no place for sentimentality.

Every man has inside himself a parasitic being who is acting not at all to his advantage.

Anything that can be done chemically can be done by other means.

No one owns life, but anyone who can pick up a frying pan owns death.

Be just and if you can't be just, be arbitrary.
