The immortal Douglas Adams

(…may his Memory be Eternal… props to Mimi…)

Why did no one tell me about Wikiquote before? Hmpf. Guess I should play around on teh internets more often.

Anyway: here’s a quote of the day for you from the ultimate Hitchhiker:

"If you try and take a cat apart to see how it works, the first thing you have on your hands is a non-working cat."

And one more… just because this quote gets stuck in my head Every Single Time I go to an airport:
"It can hardly be a coincidence that no language on Earth has ever
produced the phrase, ‘as pretty as an airport.’ Airports are ugly. Some
are very ugly. Some attain a degree of ugliness that can only be the
result of a special effort."

Watch out, man… I have access to a whole buttload  of quotes and I’m not afraid to (mis)use ’em!

    Ooh, I like this one:
    “Let’s think the unthinkable, let’s do the undoable, let’s prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all.”

    Memory Eternal indeed (that comes from the Orthodox Church, not just my head, so you know 😉 )
    Great quotes! I think my favorite by him is about deadlines zooming by.
    I should re-read those books.
