"Term 'Kitsu Sa Ko', this phrase is from the art of the tea ceremony, originated from Zen. The moment that man meets another man, evil will appear. So regardless of a person's wealth, position, gender or age, they will have to drink tea on equal grounds."

Bartender manga, Araki Joh & Nagatomo Kenji, Chapter 86: Junichi's Tribulation

"Living without ambition is like being a stone in an endless limbo; essentially lifeless and repeating the same cycle for small and temporary instances of pleasure."

"Love clouds your mind like an innovative poison; you won't realize you're suffocating, on the contrary: you might think you're living for the first time."

We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and -- in spite of True Romance magazines -- we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely -- at least, not all the time -- but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don't see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.

― Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967
