William S. Burroughs Quote

With my time management skills severely under question re: my inability to pack before a move, I’d just like to call your attention to the following quote from Mr. Bill Burroughs …

“Time is a human affliction; not a human invention but a prison. So what is the meaning of one hundred sixty million years without time? What does time mean to foraging lemurs? … Man was born in time. He lives and dies in time. Wherever he goes, he takes time with him and imposes time.”

– William S. Burroughs, Ghost of Chance

Snap, y’all.
