“Like most others, I was a seeker, a mover, a malcontent, and at times a stupid hell-raiser. I was never idle long enough to do much thinking, but I felt somehow that some of us were making real progress, that we had taken an honest road, and that the best of us would inevitably make it over the top. At the same time, I shared a dark suspicion that the life we were leading was a lost cause, that we were all actors, kidding ourselves along on a senseless odyssey. It was the tension between these two poles - a restless idealism on one hand and a sense of impending doom on the other - that kept me going.” Hunter S. Thompson, The Rum Diary (via conformer)
“America: just a nation of two hundred million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns, and no qualms about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable.” Hunter S. Thompson (via theredsun)
“Weird behavior is natural in smart children, just as curiosity is to a kitten.”

"I can’t sit out here and ruminate on the Death of the American Dream. That’s what I tried to impress on you … the importance of providing, in the contract, for adequate expense money to let me get involved. Otherwise, I’ll sit out here and serve up a bunch of pompous bullshit … … [w]hich boils down to the simple, flat and absolute fact that I have no intention of writing an Essay. That’s what critics are for, so let’s give them something to chew on".

“Once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.” Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (via halfnasty)
“A man who procrastinates in his choosing will inevitably have his choice made for him by circumstance.” Hunter S. Thompson (via thefearsarepapertigers)
