A Quote or two for Friday

All through my life I've had this strange unaccountable feeling that something was going on in the world, something big, even sinister, and no one would tell me what it was."

"No," said the old man, "that's just perfectly normal paranoia. Everyone in the Universe has that."

â Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Bypasses are devices that allow some people to dash from point A to point B very fast while other people dash from point B to point A very fast. People living at point C, being a point directly in between, are often given to wonder what's so great about point A that so many people from point B are so keen to get there, and what's so great about point B that so many people from point A are so keen to get there. They often wish that people would just once and for all work out where the hell they wanted to be."

â Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Adams manages, at least with me, to voice what somewhat nebulously sits in the back of my mind and I don't reognize it until he says it.
