    Famous Notebooks

    1. Mark Twain - “He had his leather bound notebooks custom made according to his own design idea. Each page had a tab; once a page had been used, he would tear off its tab, allowing him to easily find the next blank page for his jottings”

    2 & 3. Charles Darwin - “The notebooks were filled with memorandum to himself on things to look further into, questions he wanted to answer, scientific speculations, notes on the many books he was currently reading, natural observations, sketches, and lists of the books he had read and wanted to read. But the progression is far from orderly: the entries are chaotically arranged and wide-ranging; they jump from one scientific subject to the next and are interspersed with notes on correspondences and conversations. He would rest the notebook on his desk and write horizontally down the page with a pen, and, like Isaac Newton, he would sometimes start in from both ends of the notebook at once and work towards the middle.

    4. Jack Kerouac - The notebook entry reads: 

    “Ginsberg — intelligent enuf, interested in the outward appearance & pose of great things, intelligent enuf to know where to find them, but once there he acts like Jerry Newman, the photographer anxious to be photographed photographing —— Ginsberg wants to run his hand up the backs of people, for this he gives and seldom takes — He is also a mental screwball

    *(Tape recorder anxious to be tape recorded tape recording) (like Seymour Barab anxious to have his name in larger letters than Robert Louis Stevenson, like Steinberg & Verlaine Rimbaud Baudelaire”

    5. Ernest Hemingway - The notebook entry reads:

    “My name is Ernest Miller Hemingway

    I was born on July 21, 1899

    My favorite authors are Kipling, O. Henry and Steuart Edward White.

    My favorite flower is lady slipper and tiger lily.

    My favorite sports are trout fishing, hiking, shooting, football and boxing.

    My favorite studies are English, zoology and chemistry.

    I intend to travel and write.”

  5. "The woods are full of wardens."

     - Jack Kerouac, Lonesome Traveler

  6. "Happy. Just in my swim shorts, barefooted, wild-haired, in the red fire dark, singing, swigging wine, spitting, jumping, running—that’s the way to live. All alone by the sigh of the sea out there."

     - Jack Kerouac

    (via albrechtetgiselle-deactivated20)

  7. "North, in the wake of the destroyer, the sea stretched a seething field which grew darker as it merged with the lowering sky. The destroyer prowled."

     - Jack Kerouac, The Sea Is My Brother

  12. predatorywaspobserver:

“On The Road is the name of this opus; I want to write about the crazy generation and put them on the map and give them importance and make everything begin to change once more, as it always does every twenty years. When I die I’ll be a shroud swimming in the Parade on the River, with skinny white arms and Lotus-Eyes, and that will be that, at night.”
