It’s not so necessary to love, really, as it is to settle something deep with all of those who really matter.
Jack Kerouac ~ Windblown World
Bob Dylan ~ On the Road Again
Everyone was enamored by William because he was famous before anybody else. And he was also famous for all the wrong things. He was the first person who was famous for things you were supposed to hide. He was gay. He was a junkie. He didn’t look handsome. He shot his wife. He wrote poetry about assholes and heroin. He was not easy to like.
— John Waters in William S. Burroughs: A Man Within
