What John Waters really said
We need to make books cool again. If you go home with somebody and they don’t have books, don’t fuck them. Don’t let them explore you until they’ve explored the secret universes of books. Don’t let them connect with you until they’ve walked between the lines on the pages.
Books are cool, if you have to withhold yourself from someone for a bit in order for them to realize this then do so.
John Samuel Waters
What AV Flox had to say about it:
‘I don’t know whether he did write it, or who he wrote it to, but I like this version better. This version doesn’t suggest we should discard people who are not like us, but to try to show them the joys of things we love. I don’t know that holding back is the way, but to each his own.
In the end, the people who may be the most like us may not make their similarities manifest in the same way as we do and it’s these very differences that have the power to enrich our world, not the similarities.’
