Hunter S. Thompson
“Who knows? If there is in fact, a heaven and a hell, all we know for sure is that hell will be a viciously overcrowded version of Phoenix — a clean well lighted place full of sunshine and bromides and fast cars where almost everybody seems vaguely happy, except those who know in their hearts what is missing... And being driven slowly and quietly into the kind of terminal craziness that comes with finally understanding that the one thing you want is not there. Missing. Back-ordered. No tengo. Vaya con dios. Grow up! Small is better. Take what you can get...”
Hunter S. Thompson, Generation of Swine: Tales of Shame and Degradation in the '80's

Hunter S. Thompson
“When the going gets weird, the weird turn professional.”
Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72

Alexandre Dumas
“It's necessary to have wished for death in order to know how good it is to live.”
Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo

Blaise Pascal
“All of humanity's problems stem from man's inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”
Blaise Pascal, Pensées

Tom Robbins
“It was autumn, the springtime of death. Rain spattered the rotting leaves, and a wild wind wailed. Death was singing in the shower. Death was happy to be alive. The fetus bailed out without a parachute. It landed in the sideline Astroturf, so upsetting the cheerleaders that for the remained of the afternoon their rahs were more like squeaks.”
Tom Robbins, Still Life with Woodpecker
