5 Quotations By Jack Kerouac

5 Quotations By Jack Kerouac:

"The only truth is music."

"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."

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

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

"My whole wretched life swam before my weary eyes, and I realized no matter what you do it’s bound to be a waste of time in the end so you might as well go mad."
