Kerouac



"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 and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes 'Awww!' "

I like this, especially the part 'exploding like spiders across the stars', SO good! This makes me think of many of my close friends who are always engaging to me, who inspire me in their motivation & pursuits of their gifts, and who are equally generous in their time/gift/counsel.

Thank you friends,
I'm a better human being from your contribution to my life.
