We have been taught to keep the commandments, and we have kept them all too well. We have enshrined them like religious relics in sealed containers on the altar. Thus, it could be said that one lives by the commandments in much the same way as many persons live by a neighbor, never learning his name, let alone having any understanding communication with him.

I tell this anecdote with tongue in cheek at the start of my book William Burroughs and the Secret of Fascination, but my academic involvement with Burroughs was entirely due to my tutor at Oxford, Peter Conrad. I was discussing with him the idea of staying on to do graduate work and when I tossed the name of Burroughs into the conversation – well, he let it fall loudly onto the floor, and proceeded to cross himself as if warding off an evil spirit. Since I was very ambivalent about an academic career in any case, that decided it for me.
Would you know my name, if I saw you in Heaven?
if I fail as Jamie Foxx, I’ll just change my name and come back as something else.
Having a stage name is like having a Superman complex. I go into the telephone booth as Eric Bishop and come out as Jamie Foxx.
My parents were hippies, and the story is that they went through a dictionary looking for a beautiful word to name me. They nearly called me Banyan, but flipped a few pages on and reached "China," thankfully. The other reason they liked it is that "china" is Cockney rhyming slang for "mate."

I have a girlfriend, but I don’t really want to talk about her. I won’t name her. She isn’t in show business, has nothing to do with it. So I’d rather just keep her out of it.
Indeed there’s a woundy luck in names.
A good umpire is the umpire you don’t even notice. He’s there all afternoon but when the game is over, you don’t even remember his name.
I was like, wait a minute. When I hear my sisters’ names, I want to have a joyful feeling in my heart about it.

They are called finishing-schools and the name tells accurately what they are. They finish everything.
Your name hangs in my heart like a bell’s tongue.

It consists of a single part, made of a single material, intended for a single purpose-from which it gets its simple name. It is also among the most convenient and ready of things. It can be used directly out of the box-there being no instructions to read, no parts to assemble, no priming or booting required, and no maintenance expected. When it has served its purpose, it is simply discarded.
My name is Clark, and I have come out to see what you brave fellows are doing in Kentucky and to lend you a helping hand, if necessary.
