„Летать просто. Надо просто прыгнуть на землю и промахнуться.“

„Вначале была создана Вселенная. Многих людей это разгневало и зачастую рассматривалось как весьма опрометчивый шаг. In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.“


„Неужели недостаточно, что сад очарователен; неужели нужно шарить по его задворкам в поисках фей?“

„То, что мы живём на дне глубокой гравитационной ямы, на поверхности окутанной газовой оболочкой планеты, вращающейся на расстоянии в девяносто миллионов миль вокруг огненного ядерного шара, и считаем, что это нормально, вне всяких сомнений — свидетельство колоссального вывиха нашего восприятия реальности.“

„Обожаю крайние сроки. Обожаю свист, с которым они, словно встречный ветер, проносятся мимо. I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.“

„I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.“ The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul

„I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.“ The Salmon of Doubt

„The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.“
The Restaurant at the End of the Universe


„I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that I don't know the answer“

„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.“ The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

„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.“
The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

„The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.“ The Salmon of Doubt: Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time


„The Guide says there is an art to flying", said Ford, "or rather a knack. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.“ Life, the Universe and Everything

„Don't Panic.“ The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

„A learning experience is one of those things that says, 'You know that thing you just did? Don't do that.“ The Salmon of Doubt

„Let's think the unthinkable, let's do the undoable. Let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all.“ Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency
