This is the 8th in a series of posts where I provide a quote from one of Jack Kerouac's books and you figure out which one. Post your answer as a comment. Here's the passage:
And as far as I can see the world is too old for us to talk about it with our new words--We will pass just as quietly through life (passing through, passing through) as the 10th century people of this valley only with a little more noise and a few bridges and dams and bombs that wont [sic] even last a million years--The world being just what it is, moving and passing through, actually alright in the long view and nothing to complain about--
Good luck! Remember our policy on comments (over there on the right).
