The wonderful Hunter S Thompson

01/02/2010

Ever quotable. Ever inspirational. My hero.

“It never got fast enough to me”

“I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they’ve always worked for me.”

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming– ‘Wow! What a Ride!’”

“So we shall let the reader answer this question for himself: who is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed?”

“A man who procrastinates in his choosing will inevitably have his choice made for him by circumstance.”

“To make a point of declaring friendship is to cheapen it. For men’s emotions are very rarely put into words successfully.”

“No More Games.  No More Bombs.  No More Walking.  No More Fun.  No More Swimming.  67.  That is 17 years past 50.  17 more than I needed or wanted.  Boring.  I am always bitchy.  No Fun — for anybody.  67.  You are getting Greedy.  Act your old age.  Relax — This won’t hurt…”
