Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge: May 25, 2022

wednesdaybloggingchallenge

The Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge is hosted by Long and Short Reviews.  This week’s topic is: favorite quote from a book.

I have many, as do a lot of avid readers, I suppose.  But I chose this one because I tend to use it a lot in conversation, often to the confusion of whomever I’m speaking with at the time.

This must be Thursday,’ said Arthur to himself, sinking low over his beer. ‘I never could get the hang of Thursdays.”

This is from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams.  I love it because it’s so dang appropriate for so many situations.

Honorable mention because this book is just so darn quotable:

“We have normality. I repeat, we have normality. Anything you still can’t cope with is therefore your own problem.”

This is after they’ve engaged the improbability drive and have returned to normal travel speed.  I can’t lie, this is another I like to toss out randomly when people are being drama queens.

So, I’ll stop now or I’ll get on Goodreads and just bombard you with quotes.  Until later, so long and thanks for all the fish!

  1. I love that book! You’re making me want to reread it. It has so many fantastic quotable bits, and you picked some of the best ones. 🙂

    1. Hah, you’re welcome! It’s one of my favorites and one of the very few I reread. I highly suggest you get the audiobook for a reread since it’s narrated by Stephen Fry. His very posh accent makes all the ridiculousness of the novel sound so much more ridiculous.

    1. It really is! I used to have a list of all my favorites but I’ve lost it somewhere over the years.

      “Voon,” said the mattress is another favorite. LOL

      1. Curiously, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias, as it fell, was, “Oh no, not again!” Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly *why* the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the universe than we do now.

  2. I love this book! I need to go back and read it. I think one of the book audio dramas was on BBC sounds recently.

    1. It’s literally my favorite comfort read. Ooooh… that would have been awesome. 🙂 I picked up the audio a couple years ago with Stephen Fry narrating and my god is it a joy. LOL
