“Life is more or less a lie, but then again, that's exactly the way we want it to be.” -Bob Dylan

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.

‘Life’

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!”

The first impression is always the right one. I rarely change my mind upward about people. Sometimes you're fooled quickly. You want to be fooled. If you can't trust your first impression you're going to have a harder time than you should.

One of the few ways I can almost be certain I'll understand something is by sitting down and writing about it. Because by forcing yourself to write about it and putting it down in words, you can't avoid having your say on the subject.

Good mescaline comes on slow. The first hour is all waiting, then about halfway through the second hour you start cursing the creep who burned you, because nothing is happening...and then ZANG!

On my own front porch I have a palm tree growing in a blue toilet bowl … and on occasion I like to wander outside, stark naked, and fire my .44 Magnum at various iron gongs I’ve mounted on the nearby hillside.

Fiction is a bridge to the truth that journalism can't reach.

The mind & body must be subjected to extreme stimulus, by means of drugs & music.

The car suddenly veered off the road and we came to a sliding halt in the gravel. I was hurled against the dashboard. My attorney was slumped over the wheel. “What’s wrong?” I yelled. “We can’t stop here. This is bat country!”

Probably the closest analogy to the ideal would be a film director/producer who writes his own scripts, does his own camera work and somehow manages to film himself in action, as the protagonist or at least a main character.

The writer must be a participant in the scene, while he's writing it — or at least taping it, or even sketching it. Or all three.

I’m a word freak. I like words. I’ve always compared writing to music. That’s the way I feel about good paragraphs. When it really works, it’s like music.

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.

Those who fail to learn from the brutal stompings visited on them in the past are doomed to be brutally stomped in the future.

No drug worth taking should be sold for money.

No matter how much I wanted all those things that I needed money to buy, there was some devilish current pushing me in another direction; toward anarchy and poverty and craziness. That maddening delusion that a man can lead a decent life without hiring himself out as a Judas Goat
