    J.D. Salinger
    “I was trying to feel some kind of good-bye. I mean I’ve left schools and places I didn’t even know I was leaving them. I hate that. I don’t care if it’s a sad good-bye or a bad good-bye, but when I leave a place I like to know I’m leaving it. If you don’t you feel even worse.”
    J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

    J.D. Salinger

And the worst part is, if you go bohemian or something crazy like that, you're conforming just as much only in a different way.”
    J.D. Salinger, Franny and Zooey

    Hunter S. Thompson
    “Let us toast to animal pleasures, to escapism, to rain on the roof and instant coffee, to unemployment insurance and library cards, to absinthe and good-hearted landlords, to music and warm bodies and contraceptives... and to the "good life", whatever it is and wherever it happens to be.”
    Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman

  • #14
    Hunter S. Thompson
    “Music has always been a matter of Energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel. I have always needed Fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio.”
    Hunter S. Thompson

    Hunter S. Thompson
    “Maybe there is no Heaven. Or maybe this is all pure gibberish—a product of the demented imagination of a lazy drunken hillbilly with a heart full of hate who has found a way to live out where the real winds blow—to sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink whisky, and drive fast on empty streets with nothing in mind except falling in love and not getting arrested . . . Res ipsa loquitur. Let the good times roll.”
    Hunter S. Thompson, Generation of Swine: Tales of Shame and Degradation in the '80's

  • #21
    Hunter S. Thompson
    “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

  • #24
    Hunter S. Thompson
    “Happy," I muttered, trying to pin the word down. But it is one of those words, like Love, that I have never quite understood. Most people who deal in words don’t have much faith in them and I am no exception – especially the big ones like Happy and Love and Honest and Strong. They are too elusive and far to relative when you compare them to sharp, mean little words like Punk and Cheap and Phony. I feel at home with these, because they’re scrawny and easy to pin, but the big ones are tough and it takes either a priest or a fool to use them with any confidence.”
    Hunter S. Thompson, The Rum Diary

    “The truth is, once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.”
    Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

    Mitch Albom
    “Don't cling to things because everything is impermanent.”
    Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

  • #28
    I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn
    “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
    Marilyn Monroe

  • #29
    Bernard M. Baruch
    “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.”
    Bernard M. Baruch

    Dr. Seuss
    “Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.”
    Dr. Seuss
