Great quotes for the wall

When I was in Michigan, my two close friends were working on a ‘quotes’ wall, and I have a small collection of my own that I haven’t added to much in recent years. However, I found a great Douglas Adams quote today that you all might like, and that is very relevant to my dissertation research. This is by Douglas Adams, author of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and notorious for not making deadlines (the story goes that his editor locked himself in a hotel room with Adams to complete book three of the ‘trilogy in five parts’). And the quote is: “I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”

  1. Whoosh! Whoosh! maybe I’ll actually do more than just poke my thesis with a stick this weekend… but I doubt it! Summer is just too much fun for schoolwork!
