  • “Life, is like a grapefruit. […]it’s orangey-yellow and dimpled on the outside, wet and squidgy in the middle. It’s got pips inside, too. Oh, and some people have half a one for breakfast.”
    • Ford Prefect, in a dream sequence
  • “He hoped and prayed that there wasn’t an afterlife. Then he realized there was a contradiction involved here and merely hoped that there wasn’t an afterlife.”
    • Life, the Universe, and Everything
  • “It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.”
    • Life, the Universe, and Everything
  • Life! Don’t talk to me about life.”
    • Marvin
  • “What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue: Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn’t been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won’t be troubling you much longer.”

  • “It’s funny how just when you think life just can’t possibly get any worse it suddenly does.”
    • Marvin
  • “Life, loathe it or ignore it, you can’t like it.”
    • Marvin
  • “Everybody has their moment of great opportunity in life. If you happen to miss the one you care about, everything else in life becomes eerily easy.”
    • Mostly Harmless
  • “One definition of life, albeit not a particularly useful one, might run something like this: Life is that property which a being will lose as a result of falling out of a cold and mysterious cave, thirteen miles above ground level. This is not a useful definition, a) because it could equally well refer to the subjects glasses if he happens to be wearing them, and b) because it fails to take into account the possibility that the subject might happen to fall on the, say, the back of an extremely large passing bird. The first of these flaws is due to sloppy thinking, but the second is understandable, because the mere idea is, quite clearly, utterly ludicrous.”
    • Fit the Tenth
