Mike, you evil man. You just made me lose half an hour reading the strips. :-)

Pretty good. Sometimes Adams says smart things.

Passion is usually regarded as a great boon. But more and more I've come to doubt if it really is.

I know it's been massively overquoted, but Yeats' millenarian comment seems a worthy support to Eolake's post:
"The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity."

...And then there's Abelard's sic et non...


And then there is Hume's famous line: "Reason is, and ought only to be the slave of the passions and can never pretend to any other office but to serve and obey them."
