WHAT THE HELL

Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

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

Jack Kerouac said that. And here are a whole bunch of other things he said.

Many of them are beatific throwaways, of course, but he does have a few gems:

The only truth is music.

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

If moderation is a fault, then indifference is a crime.

You’d be surprised how little I knew even up to yesterday.

I haven’t read a whole lot of Kerouac, but these quips give you a good idea of where his head was at, when he wasn’t blotto, anyway.

Got any favorites of your own from the list?

      Well, since he died of alcohol-related causes, I’m gonna say he was blotto. 🍸
