Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you've been to college.”
Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

William S. Burroughs
“Desperation is the raw material of drastic change. Only those who can leave behind everything they have ever believed in can hope to escape. ”
William S. Burroughs

Philip K. Dick
“The true measure of a man is not his intelligence or how high he rises in this freak establishment. No, the true measure of a man is this: how quickly can he respond to the needs of others and how much of himself he can give.”
Philip K. Dick

Alan W. Watts
“Trying to define yourself is like trying to bite your own teeth.”
Alan Watts

Hermann Hesse
“Seeking means: to have a goal; but finding means: to be free, to be receptive, to have no goal.”
Herman Hesse
