Allen Ginsberg

I think it was when I ran into Kerouac and Burroughs – when I was 17 – that I realized I was talking through an empty skull… I wasn’t thinking my own thoughts or saying my own thoughts.

  1. It is akin to ” We have everything yet nothing”? I could be wrong though considering how deep this is yeah. This gave me something to think about definitely.

  2. Wow, meaning what you think you have to nothing when you see what other has. That’s just how God made the world

  3. That shows how big and small we are at the same time. Being many things we are nothing at the same time.

  4. There reaches a point where you wave to your own lane. It is good to have and follow your own thoughts.

  5. This is really deep. I need a couple of minutes to really understand what he is saying. I do believe that sometimes, we can hear voices in our head that neither you or me are saying.

  6. Interesting reflection here. Sometimes it’s hard to find clarity with our thoughts when distinguishing them from our subconscious. I think as you mature into an adult, you start to understand the way your mind works more effectively.

  7. Well, it happens at times that we go with other thoughts than with our own thought. The only thing is that we should hope that it turns ot right.

  8. I think that we must be the author of our own ideas, not copy others, because we are so capable of thinking and when we do not we are simply empty skulls, because we have no content.
