Quotes About Kerouac Death

"Siddhartha wants liberation, Dante wants Beatrice, Frodo wants to get to Mount Doom—we all want something. Quest is elemental to the human experience. All road narratives are to some extent built on quest. If youre a woman, though, this fundamental possibility of quest is denied. You cant go anywhere if you cant step out onto a road……(T)here is no female counterpart in our culture to Ishmael or Huck Finn. There is no Dean Moriarty, Sal, or even a Fuckhead. It sounds like a doctoral crisis, but its not. As a fifteen-year-old hitchhiker, my survival depended upon other peoples ability to envision a possible future for me. Without a Melvillean or Kerouacian framework, or at least some kind of narrative to spell out a potential beyond death, none of my resourcefulness or curiosity was recognizable, and therefore I was unrecognizable." - Author: Vanessa Veselka

Quotes About A Safer World

"People who need regulation often leave therapy sessions feeling calmer, stronger, safer, more able to handle the world. Often they dont know why. Nothing obviously helpful happened - telling a stranger about your pain sounds nothing like a certain recipe for relief. And the feeling inevitably dwindles, sometimes within minutes, taking the warmth and security with it. But the longer a patient depends, the more his stability swells, expanding infinitesimally with ever session as length is added to a woven cloth with each pass of the shuttle, each contraction of the loom. And after he weaves enough of it, the day comes when the patient will unfurl his independence like a pair of spread wings. Free at last, he catches a wind and rides into other lands. (172)" - Author: Thomas Lewis

He shall moldThy spirit and by giving , make it ask." - Author: Samuel Taylor Coleridge
