Wisdom from the End of the Universe

I’m reading “The Restaurant at the End of Universe” by Douglas Adams, which is part 2 in “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”.

And if it isn’t the most improbably smartest, the most irreverent, the clearly dumbest and craziest book ever written, then.…….well then it isn’t.

Anyway, here’s some choice quotes I ran into today.

“Trin Tragula – for that was his name – was a dreamer, a thinker, a speculative philosopher, or, as his wife would have it, an idiot.”

“’Funny old thing, life’, said the second iguana.”

“’Listen, Ford’, said Zaphod, ‘everything’s cool and froody.’
‘You mean everything’s under control.’
‘No,’ said Zaphod, ‘I do not mean everything’s under control. That would not be cool and froody.’

The Guide is definitive. Reality is frequently inaccurate.”
