I found a scrap of paper in my desk today that had this quote on it, one of my favorites.
“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 thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”
― Jack Kerouac, On the Road
This makes me want to be a little mad and to live life with intensity, conviction, and individuality. I enjoy people who are a bit crazy. It keeps things interesting. I also found these Jack Kerouac quotes today that made me smile:
“Don’t touch me, I’m full of snakes.”
“I am going to marry my novels and have little short stories for children.”
