Quotes: William Burroughs

"You know, they ask me if I were on a desert island and I knew nobody would ever see what I wrote, would I go on writing? My answer is most emphatically yes. I would go on writing for company. Because I'm creating an imaginary — it's always imaginary — world in which I would like to live."
- William Burroughs quoted in Paris Review, Fall 1965

  1. That's interesting - 'I would go on writing for company', that's how I feel. I am always writing.
