Quote 9/10

lilosophieSeptember 10, 2012

The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be."

â Douglas Adams,

A learning experience is one of those things that says, 'You know that thing you just did? Don't do that."

â Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

Nothing travels faster than the speed of light, with the possible exception of bad news, which obeys its own special laws."

â Douglas Adams, Mostly Harmless

Just good that I don't have room on my desk for my coffee cup! A sentence by Douglas Adams can make sense of a whole dissertation.
