Like Jack, Jack 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..."

Jack Kerouac

This quote makes my life. And it makes me want it to be summer right now so I can read On The Road (because, of course, I don't have the time to tackle that during classes). Have any of you read it? What are your thoughts?

P.S. leave it to Brooke to be awesome enough to write a song about Jack.
