Mad People - According to Jack

  My favorite quote of this week is the one that follows: “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...” This is from Jack Kerouac's novel On the Road which was written in 1951 and embodies the strange and at times fanciful adventures of a traveling man named Sal. This quote alone is enough to make me want to re-read this novel. Hauntingly beautiful is how I like to put it… I hope you get a chance to pick up this book and give it a try. Even if you don’t, enjoy the quote (I know I will - it’s my new screensaver). :)
