“It doesn’t matter how sensitive you are or how damn smart and educated you are, if you’re not both at the same time, if your heart and your brain aren’t connected, aren’t working together harmoniously, well, you’re just hopping through life on one leg. You may think you’re walking, you may think you’re running a damn marathon, but you’re only on a hop trip. The connections gotta be maintained.”

“Sometimes, you have to step outside of the person you’ve been and remember the person you were meant to be. The person you want to be. The person you are.” - H.G. Wells

“I felt like lying down by the side of the trail and remembering it all. The woods do that to you, they always look familiar, long lost, like the face of a long-dead relative, like an old dream, like a piece of forgotten song drifting across the water, most of all like golden eternities of past childhood or past manhood and all the living and the dying and the heartbreak that went on a million years ago and the clouds as they pass overhead seem to testify (by their own lonesome familiarity) to this feeling.” 

:::Jack Kerouac:::

“We laughed and laughed, together and separately, out loud and silently, we were determined to ignore whatever needed to be ignored, to build a new world from nothing if nothing in our world could be salvaged, it was one of the best days of my life, a day during which I lived my life and didn’t think about my life at all.”

Nothing in the world is more common than unsuccessful people with talent, leave the house before you find something worth staying in for.


“Oh God, are there so many of them in our land! Students who can’t be happy until they’ve graduated, servicemen who can’t be happy until they are discharged, single folks who can’t be happy until they’ve found a mate, workers who can’t be happy until they’ve retired, adolescents who aren’t happy until they’re grown, ill people who aren’t happy until they’re well, failures who aren’t happy until they succeed, restless who can’t wait until they get out of town, and in most cases, vice versa, people waiting, waiting for the world to begin.”

:::Tom Robbins:::

something good will come of all things yet

—jack kerouac

True freedom and the end of suffering is living in such a way as if you had completely chosen whatever you feel or experience at this moment.This inner alignment with Now is the end of suffering. Is suffering really necessary? Yes and no.If you had not suffered as you have, there would be no depth to you as a human being, no humility, no compassion Suffering cracks open the shell of ego, and then comes a point when it has served its purpose.Suffering is necessary until you realize it is unnecessary.

"You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body." - C.S. Lewis

"You never loved me. You never. You loved to the left of me and the right of me, maybe. You loved above me and underneath and in the back of me somewheres. But you didn’t love me. You loved my biceps and my big ol’ welders cock, and the way I danced and the way I was looser and more free than you. That’s what the hell you loved. It turned you on that I could be uninhibited, because the only place you’re free is on a piece of canvas. In art, you can break loose of your restraints. Otherwise you’re tight as the peel on a turnip.”
