30 days of me meme - day 5 (still delayed)

Delayed again. In fairness, the last couple of days have been...interesting I think is the correct word...

Already happened:
Day 01 → Your favorite song

Day 02 → Your favorite movie

Day 03 → Your favorite television program

Day 04 → Your favorite book

Day 05 → Your favorite quote
Following on from nominating four of the six H2G2 books as my favourite book (in fairness, I still haven't read the sixth...), I'd have to say that my two favourite quotes, for general all-round adaptability and usefulness in all situations, are:

"This must be ***day; I never could get the hang of ***days." [where ***day can be replaced with whatever day is under discussion]


"Ah. This is obviously some strange new usage of the word *** that I wasn't previously aware of." [where *** can be replaced with whatever word is under discussion]

And, because it went down so well in my wedding speech:

"The great hyperlobic omnicognate neutron wrangler could talk all four legs off an arcturan mega-donkey, but only *I* could persuade it go for a walk afterwards."


"It's at times like this when I'm stuck in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young." "Why, what did she tell you?" "I don't know, I wasn't listening!"

Or (different fandom):

"What's the use of a good quotation if you can't change it?"

So yeah. That's some of them.
