My Favorite Jack Kerouac Quote

  • August 27, 2012

“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, and mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars…”
– Jack Kerouac

      You don’t? Shame; he was one of the most amazing and influential writers of modern time. He was also good friends with the late poet, Alan Ginsburg, whom I used to know personally.
