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


My father and my mother and my sister and I have always voted Republican, always.


I didn't dictate sections of 'Visions of Cody'. I typed up a segment of taped conversation with Neal Cassady, or Cody, talking about his early adventures in L.A. It's four chapters.


I made myself famous by writing 'songs' and lyrics about the beauty of the things I did and ugliness, too.


Whither goest thou, America, in thy shiny car in the night?


All my editors since Malcolm Cowley have had instructions to leave my prose exactly as I wrote it. In the days of Malcolm Cowley, with 'On the Road' and 'The Dharma Bums', I had no power to stand by my style for better or for worse.


All human beings are also dream beings. Dreaming ties all mankind together.


Maybe that's what life is... a wink of the eye and winking stars.


I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.


All of life is a foreign country.


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


I hope it is true that a man can die and yet not only live in others but give them life, and not only life, but that great consciousness of life.


Symbolism is alright in 'fiction,' but I tell true life stories simply about what happened to people I knew.


My fault, my failure, is not in the passions I have, but in my lack of control of them.


My witness is the empty sky.


A pain stabbed my heart as it did every time I saw a girl I loved who was going the opposite direction in this too-big world.


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


My manners, abominable at times, can be sweet.


Avoid the world, it's just a lot of dust and drag and means nothing in the end.


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... burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
