"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 the famous Roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars" — On the Road - Jack Kerouac
