Dharma Bums VIII

"'Bang! Come on, you girls! gimps! punks! thieves! pimps! hangmen! Run!' Then I suddenly had the most tremendous feeling of the pitifulness of human beings, whatever they were, their faces, pained mouths, personalities, attempts to be gay, little petulances, feelings of loss, their dull and empty witticisms so soon forgotten."

--Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums, 1958
