“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!”
― Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967


When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. - Hunter S. Thompson

I just read this in Greenblatt's book : The Swerve. The quote itself is actually from Lucretius, though : "The greatest obstacle to pleasure is not pain, it is delusion"

It won't leave my head!

I am a collector of quotes! But one of my favorites is from Nanci Griffith : "My feet have tread upon that road you're on and I know it is not my way home."

Remember what it was like before you were born? Well, it's the same way after you die.

"Backward and forward, eternity is the same; already we have been the nothing we dread to be." Herman Melville in 'Mardi'.

I listened to 'Moby Dick' on audiobook a few months ago, read by a fine reader who brought more out of Melville's words than I could have by rereading the book on my own. I must say, not only could Melville spin a good yarn, but the descriptions of sky and sea and weather are pure poetry, and the historical and philosophical asides are essay jewels.
