"I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be."

"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so."

"You live and learn. Or at any rate, you live."

"Nothing travels faster than the speed of light, except perhaps bad news, which obeys its own special laws."

"The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to fix."

"In the beginning, the universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as abad move."

"It is a mistake to think that you can solve any major problems just with potatoes."

~Douglas Adams, 1951-2001

If you recognize these, there is a good chance that you have read at least a page of one of the books in The Hitchikers' Guide To The Galaxy series.

If you expected something deep here (words of Shakespeare, perhaps) you have come to a person with the wrong impression of deep.

And if you expected anything at all in the first place, I would advise you to go get some part of your anatomy checked as there may be a problem with your common sense.
