this morning on the way to work on the bus about 6.50 am pst, i think i fell a little in love with jack kerouac.
and right there, i wished the gift of reading for everyone. and i’m not just talking about the ability to string two words together on a page. but the ability to form critical thoughts. challenge the status quo. move beyond what’s comfortable and familiar. challenge yourself. i really wish everyone could afford to go to college and learn to get outside of themselves, open their horizons, experience new things and really learn to think. the world could truly be a different place if they did.
of course, that’s only if they didn’t then become arrogant pricks, thinking they’re better than everyone else.
