Quotes About Logical Love

"A human being becomes human not through the casual convergence of certain biological conditions, but through an act of will and love on the part of other people. If this is not the case, then humanity becomes — as it is already to a large extent — no more than a rabbit-warren.

Quotes About Kerouac San Francisco

"If Im still wistful about On the Road, I look on the rest of the Kerouac oeuvre--the poems, the poems!--in horror. Read Satori in Paris lately? But if I had never read Jack Kerouacs horrendous poems, I never would have had the guts to write horrendous poems myself. I never would have signed up for Mrs. Saffords poetry class the spring of junior year, which led me to poetry readings, which introduced me to bad red wine, and after that its all just one big blurry condemned path to journalism and San Francisco." - Author: Sarah Vowell
