It all ends in tears anyway.

Jack Kerouac Quotes Big Sur

On soft Spring nights I’ll stand in the yard under the stars – Something good will come out of all things yet – And it will be golden and eternal just like that – There’s no need to say another word.

Jack Kerouac Quotes on Love

Eager for bread and love.


Ah, life is a gate, a way, a path to Paradise anyway, why not live for fun and joy and love or some sort of girl by a fireside, why not go to your desire and LAUGH.


Never dreaming, was I, poor Jack Duluoz, that the soul is dead. That from Heaven grace descends . . . No Doctor Pisspot Poorpail to tell me; no example inside my first and only skin. That love is the heritage, and cousin to death. That the only love can only be the first love, the only death the last, the only life within, and the only word . . . choked forever.


Will you love me in December as you do in May?

Jack Kerouac Quotes on Life

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


Ah, life is a gate, a way, a path to Paradise anyway, why not live for fun and joy and love or some sort of girl by a fireside, why not go to your desire and LAUGH.


Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don’t be sorry.

Jack Kerouac Quotes about Art

If critics say your work stinks it’s because they want it to stink and they can make it stink by scaring you into conformity with their comfortable little standards. Standards so low that they can no longer be considered “dangerous” but set in place in their compartmental understandings.


I spent my entire youth writing slowly with revisions and endless rehashing speculation and deleting and got so I was writing one sentence a day and the sentence had no FEELING. Goddamn it, FEELING is what I like in art, not CRAFTINESS and the hiding of feelings.


Goddamn it, FEELING is what I like in art, not CRAFTINESS and the hiding of feelings.


So therefore I dedicate myself, to my art, my sleep, my dreams, my labors, my suffrances, my loneliness, my unique madness, my endless absorption and hunger because I cannot dedicate myself to any fellow being.

Jack Kerouac Quotes on Death

They understand death, they stand there in the church under the skies that have a beginningless past and go into the never-ending future, waiting themselves for death, at the foot of the dead, in a holy temple. – I get a vision of myself and the two little boys hung up in a great endless universe with nothing overhead and nothing under bbut the Infinite Nothingness, the Enormousness of it, the dead without number in all directions of existence whether inward into the atom-worlds of your own body or outward to the universe which may only be one atom in an infinity of atom-worlds and each atom-world only a figure of speech – inward, outward, up and down, nothing but emptiness and divine majesty and silence for the two little boys and me.


Love is bitter, death is sweet.


I’m Catholic and I can’t commit suicide, but I plan to drink myself to death.

Jack Kerouac Quotes on Journey

Think what a great world revolution will take place when … [there are] millions of guys all over the world with rucksacks on their backs tramping around the back country.


Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.


At night in this part of the West the stars, as I had seen them in Wyoming, were as big as Roman Candles and as lonely as the Prince who’s lost his ancestral home and journeys across the spaces trying to find it again, and knows he never will.

Jack Kerouac Quotes about Writing

It is not my fault that certain so-called bohemian elements have found in my writings something to hang their peculiar beatnik theories on.


No fear or shame in the dignity of yr experience, language & knowledge


I spent my entire youth writing slowly with revisions and endless rehashing speculation and deleting and got so I was writing one sentence a day and the sentence had no FEELING. Goddamn it, FEELING is what I like in art, not CRAFTINESS and the hiding of feelings.


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

Jack Kerouac Quotes Because in the End

Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.

Jack Kerouac Quotes about Dreams

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 ago and the clouds as they pass overhead seem to testify (by their own lonesome familiarity) to this feeling.


The happiness consists in realizing that it is all a great strange dream.


Night is longer than day for those who dream & day is longer than night for those who make their dreams comes true.


Listen closely… the eternal hush of silence goes on and on throughout all this, and has been going on, and will go on and on. This is because the world is nothing but a dream and is just thought of and the everlasting eternity pays no attention to it.

Jack Kerouac Quotes about Denver

I pictured myself in a Denver bar that night, with all the gang, and in their eyes I would be strange and ragged and like the Prophet who has walked across the land to bring the dark Word, and the only Word I had was ‘Wow!


I heard the Denver and Rio Grande locomotives howling off in to the mountains. I wanted to pursue my star further.


Down in Denver, all I did was die.

Jack Kerouac Quotes Live Travel

Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don’t be sorry.


So shut up, live, travel, adventure, bless and don’t be sorry.

Jack Kerouac Quotes Burn

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.

Jack Kerouac Quotes about Mothers

But there’s no joy at all, people say “Oh well he’s drunk and happy let him sleep it off”–The poor drunkard is *crying*–He’s crying for his mother and father and great brother and great friend, he’s crying for help. (p.111)


I took a straight picture that made me look like a thirty-year-old Italian who’d kill anybody who said something against his mother.

I wished I could explain it to those I loved, my mother, to Japhy, but there just weren’t any words to describe the nothingness and purity of it. “Is there a certain and definite teaching to be given to all living creatures?” was the question probably asked to beetle browed snowy Dipankara, and his answer was the roaring silence of the diamond.


I am writing this book because we’re all going to die – In the loneliness of my own life, my father dead, my brother dead, my mother faraway, my sister and my wife far away, nothing here but my own tragic hands that once were guarded by a world, a sweet attention, that now are left to guide and disappear their own way into the common dark of all our deaths, sleeping in me raw bed, alone and stupid: with just this one pride and consolation: my broke heart in the general despair and opened up inwards to the Lord, I made a supplication in this dream.
