Douglas Adams has one of the BEST quotes ever:
It can hardly be a coincidence that no language on Earth has ever produced the phrase, ‘as pretty as an airport.’ Airports are ugly. Some are very ugly. Some attain a degree of ugliness that can only be the result of a special effort.
Everytime I fly through MIA or SJO, I can’t help but think of that quote. It comes from The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul , one of his non-HHGTG books. Thought I share it with you.
