Ragged & Dirty - Bob Dylan



"Ragged & Dirty" is a hidden gem from 1993's "World Gone Wrong". Here is what Dylan wrote of the song in the liner notes:
 "RAGGED & DIRTY one of the Willie Browns did this -- schmaltz & pickled herring, stuffed cabbage, heavy moral vocabulary -- sweetness & sentiment, house rocking, superior beauty, not just standing there -- the seductive magic of the thumbs up salute, carefully thought out overtones & stepping sideways, the idols of human worship paying thru the nose, lords of the illogical in smoking jackets, sufferers from a weak education, pieces of a jigsaw puzzle -- taking stupid chances -- being mistreated only just so far."

Let the mind beware... Jack Kerouac - The Dharma Bums

“Let the mind beware, that though the flesh be bugged, the circumstances of existence are pretty glorious.” ― Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums

Real matter - Jack Kerouac

“The closer you get to real matter, rock air fire and wood, boy, the more spiritual life is. All these people thinking they're hardheaded materialistic practical types, they don't know shit about matter, their heads are full of dreamy ideas and notions.”
Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums
