my favorite quote

Argument closes off the door to the senses. It always masks violence. Continued too long, argument leads to violence. I have no violent intentions toward you.

the late, great HST

"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro."

It used to be framed on the wall of my office when I worked for the Clamshell Alliance against the Seabrook nuclear power plant on the seacoast of NH.

It wasn't a bad credo to have on tour, either.

I always liked the mid-1980s tour t-shirt that subverted a Nike advertisement of the time:

Life is short; trip hard.

the quote in question

"Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounding yourself with assholes."
--William Gibson

(or, gee, I hope he really did say this somewhere along the line, because it's a truly inspirational quote...)

now true, the great Hunter

has written many such words, but what actually brought this on was a post that came up in somebody's thread on Facebook about a week ago that was a quote from William Gibson, who's no slouch himself. So sources outside the canon are encouraged!
