Lauren liked a quote
The Rum Diary by Hunter S. Thompson
“With the palms zipping past and the big sun burning down on the road ahead, I had a flash of something I hadn’t felt since my first months in Europe—a mixture of ignorance and a loose, “what the hell” kind of confidence that comes on a man when the wind picks up and he begins to move in a hard straight line toward an unknown horizon.”
Hunter S. Thompson

The Great Shark Hunt by Hunter S. Thompson
“Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men's reality. Weird heroes and mould-breaking champions exist as living proof to those who need it that the tyranny of 'the rat race' is not yet final.”
Hunter S. Thompson

Oscar Wilde
“It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.”
Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere's Fan

Oscar Wilde
“Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Oscar Wilde
“Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.”
Oscar Wilde

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“First you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald

Oscar Wilde
“A cynic is a man who knows the price of everything, and the value of nothing.”
Oscar Wilde
