J'mets ça là sinon je vais oublier

"Although I don't feel it's at all necessary to tell you how I feel about the principle of individuality, I know that I'm going to spend the rest of my life expressing it one way or another, and I think that I'll accomplish more by expressing it on the keys of a typewriter than by letting it express itself in sudden outbursts of frustrated violence. I don't mean to say that I'm about to state my credo here on this page, but merely to affirm, sincerely for the first time in my life, my belief in man as an individual and independant entity. Certainly not independance in the everyday sense of the word, but pertaining to a freedom and mobility of thought that few people are able - or even have the courage - to achieve."

Hunter S. Thompson
