On The Road of Life with Jack Kerouac

1) One day I will find the right words and they will be simple." Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums

2) I like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running from one falling star to another till I drop. This is the night, what it does to you. I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.

3) Don't use the phone. People are never ready to answer it. Use poetry.

4) I'm going to marry my novels and have little short stories for children.

5) "They have worries, they're counting the miles, they're thinking about where to sleep tonight, how much money for gas, the weather, how they'll get there---and all the time they'll get there anyway, you see."- Jack Kerouac, On The Road: The Original Scroll

6) I saw that my life was a vast glowing empty page and I could do anything I wanted.

7) You'd be surprised how little I knew even up to yesterday.

8) "Do you think G_d made the world to amuse himself because he was bored? Because if so, he would have to be mean." -Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums

9) "Though the flesh be bugged, the circumstances of existence are still pretty glorious." -Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums

10) "When you've understood this scripture, throw it away. If you can't understand this scripture, throw it away. I insist upon your freedom."- Jack Kerouac, The Scripture of the Golden Eternity

Bonus: " Do not attempt to do a thing unless you are sure of yourself, but do not relinquish it simply because someone else is not sure of you"- Stewart E. White
