Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Betting against the point spread is a relatively mechanical trip, but betting against another individual can be very complex, if you’re serious about it – because you want to know, for starters, whether you’re betting against a fool or a wizard, or maybe against somebody who’s just playing the fool.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Nixon was no more a saint than he was a great president.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Cover a war in a place where you can’t drink beer or talk to a woman? Hell no!”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “It is like sitting in a traffic jam on the San Diego Freeway with your windows rolled up and Portuguese music booming out of the surround-sound speakers while animals gnaw on your neck and diseased bill collectors hammer on your doors with golf clubs.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “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?”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “What do you want? Where’s the goddamn ice I ordered? Where’s the booze? There’s a war on, man! People are being killed!”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Take it from me, there’s nothing like a job well done. Except the quiet enveloping darkness at the bottom of a bottle of Jim Beam after a job done any way at all.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “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 Quote: “As for LSD, I highly recommend it. We had a fine, wild weekend and no trouble at all. The feeling it produces is hard to describe. ‘Intensity’ is a fair word for it. Try half a cube at first, just sit in the living room and turn on the music – after the kids have gone to bed. But never take it in uncomfortable or socially tense situations. And don’t have anybody around whom you don’t like.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Even a blind pig finds an acorn now and then.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “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.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “I think you either have to have a very strong decisive person at the top or else a really brilliant staff command.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “But instead of losing quietly, one by one, they have banded together with a mindless kind of loyalty and moved outside the framework, for good or ill. They may not have an answer, but at least they are still on their feet.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Whatever he might have denied me was unimportant; it was the fact that he could deny me anything at all, even what I didn’t want.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “It’s much more fun to run a political campaign than it is to be the candidate.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only real cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “If you consider the great journalists in history, you don’t see too many objective journalists on that list.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “By disgracing and degrading the presidency of the United States, by fleeing the White House like a diseased cur, Richard Nixon broke the heart of the American Dream.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “This is one of the hallmarks of Vegas hospitality. The only bedrock rule is Don’t Burn the Locals. Beyond that, nobody cares. They would rather not know. If Charlie Manson checked into the Sahara tomorrow morning, nobody would hassle him as long as he tipped big.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Watching TV becomes a full-time job when you can scan 200 channels all day and all night and still have the option of punching Night Dreams into the video machine, if the rest of the world seems dull.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “It was almost May. I knew that New York was getting warm now, that London was wet, that Rome was hot – and I was on Vieques, where it was always hot and where New York and London and Rome were just names on a map.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Any candidate who’d offered a real possibility of an alternative to Nixon – someone with a different concept of the presidency – could have challenged him and come very close to beating him.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “I am a professional sportswriter, among other things, and I take the games seriously. It is only one of my many powerful addictions, and I don’t mind admitting any of them.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Those were the good mornings, when the sun was hot and the air was quick and promising, when the Real Business seemed right on the verge of happening and I felt that if I went just a little faster I might overtake that bright and fleeting thing that was always just ahead.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Every reaction is a learning process; every significant experience alters your perspective. So it would seem foolish, would it not, to adjust our lives to the demands of a goal we see from a different angle everyday? How could we ever hope to accomplish anything anther than galloping neurosis?”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “There’s also a down side.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Hungry people have the cunning of wild beasts.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “It is entirely conceivable – given the known effects of Ibogaine – that Muskie’s brain was almost paralyzed by hallucinations at the time; that he looked out at that crowd and saw gila monsters instead of people, and that his mind snapped completely when he felt something large and apparently vicious clawing at his legs. We.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “I’ll call New York for some cash.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “I guess that’s one of the things about growing up in the fifties – it never occurred to me that you wouldn’t be at least as successful as your parents.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Humphrey will go into a black neighborhood in Milwaukee and drench the streets with tears while deploring “the enduring tragedy” that life in Nixon’s America has visited on “these beautiful little children” – and then act hurt and dismayed when a reporter who covered his Florida campaign reminds him that “In Miami you were talking just a shade to the Left of George Wallace and somewhere to the Right of Mussolini.” Hubert.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Superstar politicians and superstar quarterbacks have the same kind of delicate egos, and people who life on that level grow very accustomed to very thin, rarified air. They have trouble breathing in the lower altitudes; and if they can’t breath right, they can’t function.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Nearly everyone who has ridden a bike for any length of time will agree. The highways are crowded with people who drive as if their sole purpose in getting behind the wheel is to avenge every wrong ever done them by man, beast or fate.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “I beat him like a mad dog with mange every time I got a chance, and I am proud of it. He was scum.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “This wavering paradox is a pillar of the outlaw stance. A man who has blown all his options can’t afford the luxury of changing his ways. He has to capitalize on whatever he has left, and he can’t afford to admit-no matter how often he’s reminded of it-that every day of his life takes him farther down a blind alley.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Sending Muskie against Nixon would have been like sending a three-toed sloth out to seize turf from a wolverine.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Every now and then you have to get away from that ugly Old Politics trip, or it will drive you to kicking the walls and hurling AR3′s into the fireplace.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Though I was careful never to mention it, I began to see a new dimension in everything that happened.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Who are these people? These faces! Where do they come from? They look like caricatures of used-car dealers from Dallas. But they’re real. And, sweet Jesus, there are a hell of a lot of them – still screaming around these desert-city crap tables at four-thirty on a Sunday morning. Still humping the American Dream, that vision of the Big Winner somehow emerging from the last-minute pre-dawn chaos of a stale Vegas casino.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “A man has to BE something; he has to matter.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Quacks are a part of our culture, and we all fall prey to them. Who among us can say, for sure, that even our own personal physicians are honest and competent?”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “ROSS PEROT was the best thing that happened in American politics since Richard Nixon acquired a taste for gin. In both cases, the political dialogue of the day was enriched by spontaneous gibberish that entertained the wrong people and made the right ones question their faith.”
Hunter S. Thompson Quote: “Publishers are notoriously slothful about numbers, unless they’re attached to dollar signs – unlike journalists, quarterbacks, and felony criminal defendants who tend to be keenly aware of numbers at all times.”
