Quote of the Day – Jack Kerouac / ON THE ROAD

“One of the biggest troubles of hitchhiking is having to talk to innumerable people, make them feel that they didn’t make a mistake picking you up.” Jack Kerouac / ON THE ROAD

Truman Capote commented about the writing style of ON THE ROAD, saying it wasn’t writing so much as typing. I read ON THE ROAD and Capote’s IN COLD BLOOD this summer. Kerouac’s paean to the open road wins hands down, but then I’m more into the windblown highway than tales of murderers.

Life versus death.

An easy call most of the time.
