Quotes for Planners; Douglas Adams

“There is a theory which states that if anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarrely inexplicable. There is another theory which states this has already happened.”

Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy


Quotes for Planners, James Howard Kunstler

“Because I believe a lot of people share my feelings about the tragic landscape of highway strips, parking lots, housing tracts, mega-malls, junked cities, and ravaged countryside that makes up the everyday environment where most Americans live and work. A land full of places that are not worth caring about will soon be a nation and a way of life that is not worth defending.”

— James Howard KunstlerThe Geography of Nowhere (1994)
