Scottish author Irvine Welsh doesn’t exactly hold back when it comes to language or subject-matter.

The ‘Trainspotting’ writer recently released latest novel ‘A Decent Ride’, telling the story of “top-shagger, drug-dealer, gonzo-porn-star and taxi driver Terry Lawson", and while reading it, we couldn’t help but notice that a few of the hilariously obscene quotes could easily be turned into motivational posters for the outdoors adventurer.

‘A Decent Ride’ wasn’t the only one of his novels that this formula applied to, either...
