Douglas Adams is one of those men that have made a profound influence on my life. More than I ever could thank him for if I was ever given such an opportunity.
Ditto. My revered copy of The Hitchhiker's Guide is kept safely on my bookshelf, right next to my two-volume complete Far side set. Between those 3 books, almost everything makes sense.
“I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.”
― Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt
Neil Gaiman left a sweet video on his Tumblr about Douglas. Evidently he went to his house once and his mother greeted him because Douglas was in the bath. A few minutes later, she had to go help him because he had forgotten his towel. Do as I say, not as I do, right? hehe
