Walk tall, kick ass, learn to speak Arabic, love music & never forget you come from a long line of truth seekers, lovers & warriors
Hunter S. Thompson (1937-2005)
" Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can't do is ignore them.
Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. "
(Jack Kerouac from his book, On the Road)
