Douglas Noel Adams

 “In the beginning, the universe was created. This made a lot of people very angry, and has been widely regarded as a bad idea.”

                                       – Douglas Noel Adams (b. 1952) 
                                       British author, “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” 

“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 Noel Adams (b. 1952)  

“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”
                                           – Douglas Noel Adams (b. 1952)  

“I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.”
      
                                  – Douglas Noel Adams (b. 1952)  

“Man [has] always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much; the wheel, New York, wars and so on, while all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time.But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man for precisely the same reason.”
