I'd far rather be happy than right any day."
― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

"Reality is frequently inaccurate."
― Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

"Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything so mind-bogglingly useful could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as the final and clinching proof of the non-existence of God.
The argument goes something like this: "I refuse to prove that I exist,'" says God, "for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing."
"But," says Man, "The Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. QED."
"Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't thought of that," and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.
"Oh, that was easy," says Man, and for an encore goes on to prove that black is white and gets himself killed on the next zebra crossing."

The second one rings a bell. Two people watching the same event can come away with different realities, Then the first quote comes into play, both think they are right.

RE: Quote 9/12

We think we know it all till some simple little thing like zebra stripes befuddle the whole works. Reality is an illusion and a state of mind. I vote for happiness
