Great Quote, # 1


Jack Kerouac (Mar. 12, 1922 – Oct. 21, 1969), ever the outsider, author, spiritual seeker, explorer of the psyche, a true-blue American original. Definitely the first to write a novel of historic literary importance about a road trip. coined the phrase “Beat Generation” in the course of a casual conversation. Wrote, among others, On the Road and The Dharma Bums (a book I will always hold dear).
Read them!

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace things, but burn like fabulous roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue center light pops and everybody goes AWWW!
