 Carl Zwanzig        "Duct tape is like the Force. It has a light side,
 a dark side, and it holds the universe together...."

 Douglas Adams        "There is a theory which states that if ever
 anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here,
 it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more
 bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that
 this has already happened."

 Albert Einstein        "Only two things are infinite, the universe and
 human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former."

 Unknown        "Astronomers say the universe is finite, which is a
 comforting thought for those people who can't remember where they leave

 Edward P. Tryon        "In answer to the question of why it happened, I
 offer the modest proposal that our Universe is simply one of those
 things which happen from time to time."

 John Andrew Holmes        "It is well to remember that the entire
 universe, with one trifling exception, is composed of others."

 Max Frisch        "Technology is a way of organizing the universe so
 that man doesn't have to experience it."

 Kilgore Trout        "The universe is a big place, perhaps the
 biggest." (Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.)

 Woody Allen        "I'm astounded by people who want to 'know' the
 universe when it's hard enough to find your way around Chinatown."

 Douglas Adams        "In the beginning the Universe was created. This
 has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move."

 William J. Broad        "The crux... is that the vast majority of the
 mass of the universe seems to be missing."

 Rich Cook        "Programming today is a race between software
 engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot- proof programs,
 and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far,
 the Universe is winning."

 Fred Hoyle        "There is a coherent plan in the universe, though I
 don't know what it's a plan for."

 Ray Bradbury        "We are an impossibility in an impossible universe."

 Christopher Morley        "My theology, briefly, is that the universe
 was dictated but not signed."

 Edward Chilton        "I'm worried that the universe will soon need
 replacing. It's not holding a charge."

 Calvin and Hobbes (Bill Watterson)        "The surest sign that
 intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that it has never
 tried to contact us."
