Douglas Adams
“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst 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 reasons.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Abraham Lincoln
“Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.”
Abraham Lincoln

P.G. Wodehouse
“I hadn't the heart to touch my breakfast. I told Jeeves to drink it himself.”
P.G. Wodehouse

Frank Zappa
“So many books, so little time.”
Frank Zappa

Mark Twain
“′Classic′ - a book which people praise and don't read.”
Mark Twain
