Quote of the Day

I was unwell yesterday, I keep on trying to schedule these well beforehand, but I feel it’s better to have them done on the same day, and not queued up. I don’t know why, it would make a lot more sense, since I’d be queuing the quotes.

“It seems odd, don’t you think, that the quality of the food should vary inversely with the brightness of the lighting. Makes you wonder what culinary heights the kitchen staff could rise to if you confined them to perpetual darkness.” – from Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams.

“Do you think the archangel Gabriel thinks anything the less of me, because I promptly and respectfully obey that old hunks in that particular instance? Who ain’t a slave? Tell me that. Well, then, however the old sea-captains may order me about–however they may thump and punch me about, I have the satisfaction of knowing that it is all right; that everybody else is one way or other served in much the same way–either in a physical or metaphysical point of view, that is; and so the universal thump is passed round, and all hands should rub each other’s shoulder-blades, and be content.”

– from Moby Dick by Herman Melville.
