July 18 – Happy Birthday HST
I always figured I would live on the margins of society, part of a very small Outlaw segment.
– Dr. Hunter S. Thompson (July 18, 1937 – Feb 20, 2005)
The Outsider’s case against society is very clear. All men and women have these dangerous, unnameable impulses, yet they keep up a pretence, to themselves, to others; their respectability, their philosophy, their religion, are all attempts to gloss over, to make look civilized and rational something that is savage, unorganized, irrational. He is an Outsider because he stands for Truth.
– Colin Wilson The Outsider
