Gonzo journalism is a style of reporting based on William Faulkner's idea that the best fiction is far more true than any kind of journalism -- and the best journalists have always known this. True gonzo reporting needs the talents of a master journalist, the eye of an artist/photographer and the heavy balls of an actor. Because 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. 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.
– Hunter S. ThompsonRate it:

– Agatha ChristieRate it:
Good advice is something a man gives when he is too old to set a bad example.
– Francois de La RochefoucauldRate it:
Good and bad are not of different kinds but only vary in degree; both vary in quantity not in quality. There is nothing called quality but only a variation in quantity; a quality is an effect of varying quantities. This way a good becomes bad at a limiting point that is known to us; but a bad already became bad at a limit that is not known to us!
– Thiruman ArchunanRate it:
Good and bad lies within and without one other loses its mean and essence.”
– Zaman AliRate it:
