JACK KEROUAC QUOTE

“The world you see is just a movie in your mind.

Rocks dont see it.

Bless and sit down.

Forgive and forget.

Practice kindness all day to everybody

and you will realize you’re already

in heaven now.

That’s the story.

That’s the message.

Nobody understands it,

nobody listens, they’re

all running around like chickens with heads cut off

I will try to teach it but it will

be in vain, s’why I’ll

end up in a shack

praying and being

cool and singing

by my woodstove

making pancakes.”

Jack Kerouac, author of On The Road

Letter to Edie Kerouac Parker, 1957

  1. He’s so unique in that one would expect him to be anything but a gentle soul (although I’m sure he had his days, like many of us). First read him at age 15 when I wandered into a coffee house and met an older guy who gave me a “reading list” that I’ve never regretted .. 🙂
