Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.  Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read  - Groucho Marx

The story so far:  In the beginning, the Universe was created.  This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.     - Douglas Adams

In those days spirits were brave, the stakes were high, men were real men, women were real women and small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri were real small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri.

    - Douglas Adams


There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

    - Douglas Adams


Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.

Douglas Adams is the shit and the Hitchhiker's Guide series is one of my all-time favorites.
Heres some more quotes:

He attacked everything in life with a mix of extraordinary genius and naive incompetence, and it was often difficult to tell which was which.
   
He hoped and prayed that there wasn't an afterlife. Then he realized there was a contradiction involved here and merely hoped that there wasn't an afterlife.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don't.

You live and learn. At any rate, you live.


And of course:

So long and thanks for all the fish.

And:

"We apologise for the inconvenience", God's Final Message to His Creation, written in letters of fire on the side of the Quentulus Quazgar Mountains, Sevorbeupstry, on planet Preliumtarn, Galactic Sector QQ7 Active J Gamma.

Its been years since I read the books, but to this day, I still try to take a towel everywhere I go.
Careful man, there's a beverage here!



No funny stuff, ok?

The dude was a dude who really knew where his towel was. And his towel really tied the room together.

To quote from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitch hiker can have. Partly it has great practical
value - you can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a mini raft down the slow heavy river Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or to avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mindboggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you - daft as a bush, but very, very ravenous); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker) discovers that a hitch hiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitch hiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitch hiker might accidentally have "lost". What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is is clearly a man to be reckoned with.

There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.
Epictetus (55 AD - 135 AD)

Once in a while you get shown the light in the stangest of places if you look at it right.

The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it always to be kept alive.
Thomas Jefferson (1743 - 1826)

Hey Man, I'm drinking wine, eating cheese and catching some rays.
Donald Sutherland as Oddball, in "Kelly's Heros"

Those who are clever, who have a Brain, never understand anything.
Pooh's Little Instruction Book, inspired by A. A. Milne

I can win an argument on any topic, against any opponent. People know this, and steer clear of me at parties. Often, as a sign of their great respect, they don't even invite me.
Dave Barry (1947 - )

Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.

You can forget a lot of things, but you cannot forget a woman's name and claim to love her.
Real Live Preacher, RealLivePreacher.com Weblog, October 20, 2003

I have the worlds largest seashell collection. You may have seen it, I keep it spread out on beaches all over the world.        Steven Wright


Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.
Dr. Seuss (1904 - 1991), The Lorax

Life is like playing the violin in public and learning the instrument as one goes on.
