Quotations from Douglas Adams:

 'Sir,' I said to the universe, 'I exist.' 'That,' said the universe, 'creates no sense of obligation in me whatsoever.'

Douglas Adams, (1952 - 2001) Author
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy



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

Douglas Adams, (1952 - 2001) Author



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

Douglas Adams, (1952 - 2001) Author



 It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

Douglas Adams, (1952 - 2001) Author
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Chapter 24 



 Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.

Douglas Adams, (1952 - 2001) Author



 Meanwhile, the poor Babel fish, by effectively removing all barriers to communication between different races and cultures, has caused more and bloodier wars than anything else in the history of creation.

Douglas Adams, (1952 - 2001) Author
Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy 



 The world is a thing of utter inordinate complexity and richness and strangeness that is absolutely awesome.

I mean the idea that such complexity can arise not only out of such simplicity, but probably absolutely out of nothing, is the most fabulous extraordinary idea.

And once you get some kind of inkling of how that might have happened, its just wonderful.

And the opportunity to spend 70 or 80 years of your life in such a universe is time well spent as far as I am concerned.

Douglas Adams, (1952 - 2001) Author
