    Below is a small collection of HST quotes.

    Of course everything he wrote is a great quote if he chop it up small enough. HST14

    If you have a favorite Hunter S. Thompson quote you love or despise please leave it as a comment and I’ll get it on the list, or not.



    1.A word to the wise is infuriating.

    2. 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.

    3. Buy the ticket, take the ride.

    4. Call on God, but row away from the rocks.HST11

    5. For every moment of triumph, for every instance of beauty, many souls must be trampled.

    6. Going to trial with a lawyer who considers your whole life-style a Crime in Progress is not a happy prospect.

    7. I feel the same way about disco as I do about herpes.

    8. I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they’ve always worked for me.

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

    10. I wouldn’t recommend sex, drugs or insanity for everyone, but they’ve always worked for me.

    11. If I’d written all the truth I knew for the past ten years, about 600 people – including me – would be rotting in prison cells from Rio to Seattle today. Absolute truth is a very rare and dangerous commodity in the context of professional journalism.

    12. If you’re going to be crazy, you have to get paid for it or else you’re going to be locked up.

    13. In a closed society where everybody’s guilty, the only crime is getting caught. In a world of thieves, the only sin is stupidity.

    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.

    Never do anything the person standing in front of you can't understand.

    When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

    Faster, Faster... until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death. (obviously appeals to the motorcycle riders here)

    Too weird to live... too rare to die.

    With a bit of luck, his life was ruined forever.
