The poetry of need

Thirst for gourmet mind food must still be there amongst our deeper needs. Only art can supply it and only literature is available to everyone who can read, no special training needed. So why is it dying?

Quotes by John Burdett  (?)

“Your fear of letting go prevents you from letting go of your fear of letting go.”
John Burdett, Bangkok Tattoo

“You don't understand. I only prostitute the part of the body that isn't important, and nobody suffers except my karma a little bit. I don't do big harm. You prostitute your mind. Mind is seat of Buddha. What you do is very very bad. You should not use your mind in that way”
John Burdett, Bangkok Tattoo

“Don't ask me when I first mastered the obvious.”
John Burdett, Bangkok 8
