    Not really a quote, but this passage from Restaurant at the end of the universe by Douglas Adams is brilliant.

    The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is an indispensable companion to all those who are keen to make sense of life in an infinitely complex and confusing Universe, for though it cannot hope to be useful or informative on all matters, it does at least make the reassuring claim, that where it is inaccurate it is at least definitely inaccurate. In cases of major discrepancy it’s always reality that’s got it wrong. This was the gist of the notice. It said “The Guide is definitive. Reality is frequently inaccurate.”

    This has led to some interesting consequences. For instance, when the Editors of the Guide were sued by the families of those who had died as a result of taking the entry on the planet Traal literally (it said “Ravenous Bugblatter beasts often make a very good meal for visiting tourists” instead of “Ravenous Bugblatter beasts often make a very good meal of visiting tourists") they claimed that the first version of the sentence was the more aesthetically pleasing, summoned a qualified poet to testify under oath that beauty was truth, truth beauty and hoped thereby to prove that the guilty party was Life itself for failing to be either beautiful or true. The judges concurred, and in a moving speech held that Life itself was in contempt of court, and duly confiscated it from all those there present before going off to enjoy a pleasant evening’s ultragolf.

    Interesting, Nietzsche as quotable as ever. What is that book about ^?


    It's a whirlwind summary of his own philosophy, and as such gets some stick for being relatively crude - shrill, even - compared to his earlier work.

    To me, it was a book about bad philosophy, poor historical sense, and how the prevailing conception of human nature (and thence morality) in a post-Christian world was as yet unchanged from when the claims of an all-powerful God still held sway. His characterisation of various philosophers is fun to read; he bashes Utilitarians (allegedly without having bothered to read any - the English have a particular place in his demonology), and - unsurprisingly - he doesn't care much for Kant. My copy has The Anti-Christ bundled with it; as a complementary piece, intriguing reading.

    edit: Sentence order. Always a good thing to get right first time. Oh well..

    "The central belief of every moron is that he is the victim of a mysterious conspiracy against his common rights and true deserts. He ascribes all his failure to get on in the world, all of his congenital incapacity and damfoolishness, to the machinations of werewolves assembled in Wall Street, or some other such den of infamy. If these villains could be put down, he holds, he would at once become rich, powerful and eminent. Nine politicians out of every ten, of whatever party, live and have their being by promising to perform this putting down. In brief, they are knaves who maintain themselves by preying on the idiotic vanities and pathetic hopes of half-wits."

    Reporter: what went through your mind when you broke into the house only to find the owner pointing a gun at you?

    Man: Well the paper said that " upon being shot in the chest with a .22 the burglar calmly said, " oops". 

    Reporter: Oops?

    Man: I don't remember me saying that on account of the bullet in my chest, but it sounds like something I would have said.

    So once again I'm left with the classic Irish man's dilemma, do I eat the potato or do I let it ferment so I can drink it later?

    Quotes from my favourite book, the  Perks of Being a Wallflower. Smiley

    “It's great that you can listen and be a shoulder to someone, but what about when someone doesn't need a shoulder? What if they need the arms or something like that? You can't just sit there and put everybody's lives ahead of yours and think that counts as love. You just can't. You have to do things.”

    So I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we'll never know most of them. But even if we don't have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.

    “Charlie, we accept the love we think we deserve.”

    I just think it's bad when a boy looks at a girl and thinks that the way he sees her is better than she actually is. And I think it's bad when the most honest way a boy can look at a girl is through a camera.

    This moment will just be another story someday.

    I am very interested and fascinated by how everyone loves each other, but no one really likes each other.

    So, I looked up and we were in this giant dome like a glass snowball, and Mark said that the amazing white stars were really only holes in the black glass of the dome, and when you went to heaven, the glass broke away, and there was nothing but a whole sheet of star white, which is brighter than anything but doesn't hurt your eyes. It was vast and open and thinly quiet, and I felt so small.

    I hope it's the kind of second side that he can listen to whenever he drives alone and feel like he belongs to something whenever he's sad. I hope it can be that for him.

    Giles: You mean life?
    Buffy: Yeah, does it get easy?
    Giles: What do you want me to say?
    Buffy: Lie to me.
    Giles: Yes. It's terribly simple. The good guys are always stalwart and true. The bad guys are easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats, and, uh, we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies and... everybody lives happily ever after.
    Buffy: Liar.

        Liberty consists in the freedom to do everything which injures no one else; hence the exercise of the natural rights of each man has no limits except those which assure to the other members of the society the enjoyment of the same rights. These limits can only be determined by law.
        Law can only prohibit such actions as are hurtful to society. Nothing may be prevented which is not forbidden by law, and no one may be forced to do anything not provided for by law.
