Hunter S. Thompson

Hunter S. Thompson Motivational Quotations:

  • “Life has become immeasurably better since I have been forced to stop taking it seriously.”

  • 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!”

  • “We are living in dangerously weird times now. Smart people just shrug and admit they're dazed and confused. The only ones left with any confidence at all are the New Dumb. It is the beginning of the end of our world as we knew it. Doom is the operative ethic.”

  • “The downward spiral of Dumbness in America is about to hit a new low.”

  • “I learned a long time ago that reality was much weirder than anyone's imagination.”

  • Sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink whisky and drive fast on empty streets with nothing in mind but falling in love and not getting arrested.”

  • “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.”

  • Hope rises and dreams flicker and die. Love plans for tomorrow and loneliness thinks of yesterday. Life is beautiful and living is pain.”

  • “My greatest talent is in my ability to choose good friends. It's about as important as things get.”

  • “The slow-rising central horror of "Watergate" is not that it might grind down to the reluctant impeachment of a vengeful thug of a president whose entire political career has been a monument to the same kind of cheap shots and treachery he finally got nailed for, but that we might somehow fail to learn something from it.”

  • “I drink much less than most people think, and I think much more than most people would believe. I am quite sincere about some of the things that people take very lightly, and almost insultingly unconcerned about some of the things which most people take seriously. In short, I am basically antisocial: certainly not to an alarming degree, but just more so than I appear to be.”

Hunter S. Thompson

  • “Those who fail to learn from the brutal stompings visited on them in the past are doomed to be brutally stomped in the future.”
  • “It's in my interest, in ours perhaps, or maybe the interests of the greater good, for me to smoke a joint, and calm down.”

  • “Anything that gets your blood racing is probably worth doing.”

  • “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.”

  • “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.”

  • “So we shall let the reader answer this question for himself: who is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed?”

  • “A man who procrastinates in his choosing will inevitably have his choice made for him by circumstance.”

  • “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.”

  • “Human beings are the only creatures on earth that claim a God and the only thing that behaves like it hasn't got one.”

  • “I believe the Republicans have never thought that democracy was anything but a tribal myth.”

  • “You won't find reasonable men on the tops of tall mountains.”

  • “For a loser, Vegas is the meanest town on earth.”

  • “There is something fresh and crisp about the first hours of a Caribbean day, a happy anticipation that something is about to happen, maybe just up the street or around the next corner.”

  • “As your attorney, it is my duty to inform you that it is not important that you understand what I'm doing or why you're paying me so much money. What's important is that you continue to do so.”

  • “Love plans for tomorrow and loneliness thinks of yesterday.”

  • “Freedom is something that dies unless it's used.”

  • “The real power in America is held by a fast-emerging new Oligarchy of pimps and preachers who see no need for Democracy or fairness or even trees, except maybe the ones in their own yards, and they don't mind admitting it.”

  • “I have a theory that the truth is never told during the nine-to-five hours.”

  • “Never fire a warning shot. It is a waste of ammunition.”

  • “In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity.”

  • “Insanity is a legal term. Crazy is an art form.”

  • “They say that "he who flies highest, falls farthest" - and who am I to argue? But we can't forget that "he who doesn't flap his wings, never flies at all".”

  • “There is no story unless you've written it.”

  • “Fear is a healthy instinct, not a sign of weakness. It is a natural self-defense mechanism that is common to felines, wolves, hyenas, and most humans. Even fruit bats know fear, and I salute them for it. If you think the world is weird now, imagine how weird it would be if wild beasts had no fear.”

  • “It is not necessary to accept the choices handed down to you by life as you know it.”

  • “In a closed society where everybody's guilty, the only crime is getting caught. In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity.”

  • “Beware of looking for goals: look for a way of life.”

  • “The mind of America is seized by a fatal dry rot - and it's only a question of time before all that the mind controls will run amuck in a frenzy of stupid, impotent fear.”

  • “The first impression is always the right one. I rarely change my mind upward about people.”

  • “Words are such a poor medium when you really want someone to feel something.”

  • “Call on God, but row away from the rocks.”

  • “I miss Nixon. Compared to these Nazis we have in the White House now, Richard Nixon was a flaming liberal.”

  • “In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone.”

  • “I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.”

Hunter S. Thompson

  • “Never turn your back on fear. It should always be in front of you, like a thing that might have to be killed.”
  • “The only difference between the sane and the insane is that the sane have the power to lock up the insane.”

  • “I don't see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.”

  • “We have become a Nazi monster in the eyes of the whole world - bullies and bastards who would rather kill than live peacefully. We are whores for power and oil with hate and fear in our hearts”

  • “Anything worth doing is worth doing well.”

  • “I am a generous man, by nature, and far more trusting than I should be. Indeed. The real world is risky territory for people with generosity of spirit. Beware.”

  • “I just usually go with my own taste. If I like something, and it happens to be against the law, well, then I might have a problem.”

  • “Freedom, Truth, Honour you could rattle off a hundred such words and behind every one of them would gather a thousand punks, pompous little farts, waving the banner with one hand and reaching under the table with the other.”

  • “Beware of looking for goals: look for a way of life. Decide how you want to live and then see what you can do to make a living WITHIN that way of life.”

  • “I will fight for your right to be weird- just as I know you will fight for mine.”

  • “Some may never live, but the crazy never die.”

  • “With the truth so dull and depressing, the only working alternative is wild bursts of madness and filigree.”

  • “It was like falling down an elevator shaft and landing in a pool full of mermaids.”

  • “Avoid being seized by the police. The cops are not your friends. Don't tell them anything.”

  • “I have warned many times about the guaranteed dangers of betting with your heart instead of your head - big darkness, soon come - but every once in a while you get a fair chance to have it both ways, and the annual NCAA basketball Tournament is one of them.”

  • “A cap of good acid costs five dollars and for that you can hear the Universal Symphony with God singing solo and Holy Ghost on drums.”

  • “All political power comes from the barrel of either guns, pussy, or opium pipes, and people seem to like it that way.”

  • “Walk tall, kick ass, learn to speak Arabic, love music and never forget you come from a long line of truth seekers, lovers and warriors.”

  • “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.”

  • “It will be a Religious War, a sort of Christian Jihad, fueled by religious hatred and led by merciless fanatics on both sides. It will be guerilla warfare on a global scale, with no front lines and no identifiable enemy.”

  • “I think I'm one of the most patriotic people that I've ever encountered in America. I consider myself a bedrock patriot. I participate very actively in local politics, because my voice might be worthwhile. I participate in a meaningful way - not by donations; I work at it.”

  • “If you work in either journalism or politics... you will be flogged for being right and flogged for being wrong, and it hurts both ways-but it doesn't hurt as much when you're right.”

  • “If you're going to be crazy, you have to get paid for it or else you're going to be locked up.”

  • “All we have to do is get out and vote, while it's still legal, and we will wash those crooked warmongers out of the White House.”

  • “Absolute truth is a very rare and dangerous commodity in the context of professional journalism.”

  • “Not a wasted word. This has been a main point to my literary thinking all my life.”

  • “I understand that fear is my friend, but not always. Never turn your back on Fear. It should always be in front of you, like a thing that might have to be killed. My father taught me that, along with a few other things that have kept my life interesting.”

  • “There are always risks in challenging excessive police power, but the risks of not challenging it are more dangerous, even fatal.”

  • “The mind and body must be subjected to extreme stimulus, by means of drugs and music.”
