The Crazy Ones

Jack Kerouac is one of my favourite authors and personalities in the true sense of the word. We have many celebrities today, but we are sorely lacking in unique personalities. Kerouac is certainly unique and some of my all-time favourite prose is written by this rebel. One of my regrets in life is that I have never had the courage or foresight to be a rebel, either with or without a cause (unlike my friend Colleen). But I appreciate those who can.

Here’s to the crazy ones-Jack Kerouac;

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
