Kerouac Monday (9/22) Octopus’s Gardener

“The silence was an intense roar.”

– Mandala Offering- the Gyuto Monks Tantric Choir

“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.”

– The Well- Dirtwire, Beatsantique, Rising Appalachia

“The only truth is music.”

– Hoppipolla- Vitamin String Quartet

“There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars.”

– Sphinx- Valentin Wiest

“Great things are not accomplished by those who yield to trends and popular opinion.”

– L’Absente- Yann Tiersen

“What is that feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you their specks dispersing? – it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.”

– Attaboy- Yo Yo Ma

“Happiness consists in realizing it is all a great strange dream.”

– Angie- Bert Jansch

“I’m going to marry my novels and have little short stories for children.”

– Hatha Rhythm- Bleecker

“I felt like lying down by the side of the trail and remembering it all. The woods do that to you, they always look familiar, long lost, like the face of a long-dead relative, like an old dream, like a piece of forgotten song drifting across the water, most of all like golden eternities of past childhood or past manhood and all the living and the dying and the heartbreak that went on a million years years ago and the clouds as they pass overhead seem to testify (by their own lonesome familiarity) to this feeling.”

– Finally Moving- Pretty Lights

“I saw that my life was a vast glowing empty page and I could do anything I wanted.”

– Budapest- The Balcony Players

– A Quai- Yann Tiersen

“One day I will find the right words and they will be simple.”

– Ain’t We Got Fun- Jack Kerouac

– On The Road- Jack Kerouac

“I am writing this book because we are going to die”

(all of the quotes are by Jack Kerouac)
