Quote of the Day – Hunter S. Thompson on Myths and Legends

I thought that I’ve used this quote before; I cannot believe I have not. We build people up, many time, only to tear them down. And some among us do it for sport!

Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men’s reality. Weird heroes and mould-breaking champions exist as living proof to those who need it that the tyranny of ‘the rat race’ is not yet final. – Hunter S. Thompson
