Famous quotes containing the word burroughs:

    England has the most sordid literary scene I’ve ever seen. They all meet in the same pub. This guy’s writing a foreword for this person. They all have to give radio programs, they have to do all this just in order to scrape by. They’re all scratching each other’s backs.
    —William Burroughs (b. 1914)

    Me Tarzan, you Jane.
    —Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875–1950)

    No atomic physicist has to worry, people will always want to kill other people on a mass scale. Sure, he’s got the fridge full of sausages and spring water.
    —William Burroughs (b. 1914)
