Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.

Douglas Adams wallpaper

I created this because I wanted a wallpaper with one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite authors. This quote comes from the mouth of resident alien Ford Prefect as he is preparing Arthur Dent to unexpectedly take his first interstellar trip. It’s from Adams’ wildly popular novel, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. If you don’t already own a copy, do yourself and the galaxy a favor and pick one up.

Here’s the quote in context from Chapter 2…

“Ford,” said Arthur, “would you please tell me what the hell is going on?”

“Drink up,” said Ford, “you’ve got three pints to get through.”

“Three pints?” said Arthur. “At lunchtime?”

The man next to Ford grinned and nodded happily. Ford ignored him. He said, “Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.”

“Very deep,” said Arthur, “you should send that in to the Reader’s Digest. They’ve got a page for people like you.”

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.
