And if there is anybody out there who feels crazy enough to want to become a writer, I’d say go ahead, spit in the eye of the sun, hit those keys, it’s the best madness going, the centuries need help, the species cry for light and gamble and laughter.

I hope it is true that a man can die and yet not only live in others but give them life, and not only life but that great consciousness of life. — Jack Kerouac (via fuckyeahbeatgeneration)
