Wild West quotes about outlaws! (this time, from contemporaries!)

People loved our Wild West quotes post so much, that I made another whole post dedicated to MORE Wild West quotes... and then that was so popular that I dug around for some quotes about outlaws, this time from more modern people.

"An outlaw can be defined as somebody who lives outside the law, beyond the law and not necessarily against it." - Hunter S. Thompson

"The fact is that the average man's love of liberty is nine-tenths imaginary, exactly like his love of sense, justice and truth... Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty - and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies." - H. L. Mencken

"Love is the ultimate outlaw. It just won't adhere to any rules. The most any of us can do is sign on as its accomplice." - Tom Robbins

"When a man is denied the right to live the life he believes in, he has no choice but to become an outlaw." - Nelson Mandela

"I wasn't trying to be an outlaw writer. I never heard of that term; somebody else made it up. But we were all outside the law: Kerouac, Miller, Burroughs, Ginsberg, Kesey; I didn't have a gauge as to who was the worst outlaw. I just recognized allies: my people." - Hunter S. Thompson

"When evolution has been outlawed, only the outlaws will evolve." - Willie Nelson

"When freedom is outlawed, only outlaws will be free." - Tom Robbins

"All human advances occur in the outlaw area." - R. Buckminster Fuller

"Innovative people have always been in high demand. Help those around you to develop that 'never-say-die' attitude by developing it yourself. Make a decision, today, to outlaw complaining, whining and negative thinking in your own personality. And, a word of caution: if and when you are criticized for being so positive or as some call it, “unrealistic,” you will know you are on the right track." - Bob Proctor

"I think, generally, the flawed anti-hero is much more interesting than the normal hero, and that's really what we're talking about here as it relates to outlaws or renegades." - Tod Goldberg
