| “It is not necessary to accept the choices handed down to you by life as you know it.”
To me, sums up as, "Do what you love, and love what you do." Do the things that you enjoy and find ways to enjoy what you do. You must continue doing the things that fulfill you as well as finding ways to enjoy what you are doing. This seems too tame and "plain Jane" for Hunter S. Thompson to have said it this way, but I tend to interpret it as such.
