Today was Neal Cassady
. it's also a full moon
and the date on which the Boy Scouts
were founded. Here are some Cassady quotes:
"The secret of the fuse
is to think of the soul
and not the ego
. It took the Chinese
years to discover swallowing tadpoles
by the dozens doesn't make for effective contraceptives."
"This Eyetalian --or was it E
? --opened a pack of Camels
upsidedown, impressed even me."
"I swore, for all those Saddiday nights I missed when I was in San Quentin
I'd stay up every Saturday night for two full years to make up."
(Excerpts from the movie: "Neal Cassady In The Backhouse
," filmed by Page Browning
at La Honda
