“You fear ugliness, you chase beauty and embrace it… So someday, something ugly and real will happen. Compassion will not help. Strength you will need, but you won’t have it. You’ll crack.”
— Jack Kerouac, The Haunted Life (via east-of-everything)

Daniel Radcliffe as Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings
"It’s a love story. I always like to make that point. To my knowledge, there’s no difference between how gay people and how straight people fall in love. So you just have to find that part of Dane, or of Dane’s character, that Allen was in love with. Which is that charismatic, outgoing boldness that he had that Allen didn’t have. And you kind of focus in on that and make that the part of the character that you always see. Basically, when people talk about chemistry, often what they mean is just being interested in the other person."

Bill must’ve said something funny from the floor, we were taking snapshots of each other on same couch, my $13.00 Kodak Retina pawn-shop camera in Burroughs’ hands. He stayed in the apartment East 7th Street between Avenues B & C most of that Fall 1953.
