Hunter S. Thompson Quotes

Let these quotes by Hunter S. Thompson help you to have a positive attitude toward life, and to think positively.

with the intention of arriving safely

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
