Vexation of Spirit

What is my book but just making history among the fools—the sooner I give up literary attainment the sooner Enlightenment will come to me—If on my deathbed I’m still involved in literary matters I’ll deserve the most painful of rebirths—Milarepa, save me!
–Jack Kerouac, Some of the Dharma

Title above indebted to Ecclesiastes, 1.17
