        “Genius gives birth, talent delivers. What Rembrandt or Van Gogh saw in the night can never be seen again. Born writers of the future are amazed already at what they’re seeing now, what we’ll all see in time for the first time, and then see imitated many times by made writers.”

        –Jack Kerouac

          Good one! Kerouac led an interesting life though tragic.

    True.  I once had a writing instructor tell me I wrote a lot like Kerouac - only with no discipline!  Kerouac was certainly an original.

      I can't fathom Kerouac using discipline. He wrote off the cuff.
