>Nostalgia Fridays: Live Fast, Die Young, The 50’s Mad Ones

“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 and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!.” – ( On The Road by Jack Kerouac)

  1. >This keeps happening on the internet…This quote is absolutely NOT Jack Kerouac’s. It is from an Apple commercial…thank you Steve Jobs.Kerouac’s is real poetry and passion.“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 and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”

  2. >Living like a mad one causes you to burn, burn, burn, burnout! I remember those days. Back before the medication. Life was rather dramatic and poetic. I’m glad I documented much of it.Tis a fantastic quote though.
