“He was constantly reminded of how startlingly different a place the world was when viewed from a point only three feet to the left.”
That's from The Salmon of Doubt, the book Douglas Adams was writing when he died.
Imagine: A startlingly different place, and only three feet to the left. It seems to me that three steps to the left is an easy journey to see a startlingly different world. That's worth the trip, don't you think?
