all you need is love

William Burroughs

All You Need Is Love

“Love?
What is it?
Most natural
painkiller
what there is.”
The last
journal entry
of William
S. Burroughs.

 

Coming from
someone
like Burroughs
on the
eve of
his death
this message
carries
more weight
than the
love proclamations
of Krisnanmurti
Saint Francis
Assisi &
all the
flower children
of the
Sixties.
