Terry Pratchett Quotes
“There are things around, and I know where they can be got quite easily, but I quite like waking up to the sunshine.”
Terry Pratchett Quotes
“Taxation is just a sophisticated way of demanding money with menaces.”
Terry Pratchett Quotes
“Knowing that you are going to die is, I suspect, the beginning of wisdom.”
Terry Pratchett Quotes
“'Discworld' is taking something that you know is ridiculous and treating it as if it is serious, to see if something interesting happens when you do so.”
“In all seriousness, people think that it's the ideas that are important. Well, everyone has ideas, all the time. I tend to write mine down and remember them, but at some point you have to apply the bum to the seat and knock out about sixty five thousand words - that's how long a novel is.”
“In the first book of my Discworld series, published more than 26 years ago, I introduced Death as a character; there was nothing particularly new about this - death has featured in art and literature since medieval times, and for centuries we have had a fascination with the Grim Reaper.”
Terry Pratchett Quotes
“My experience in Amsterdam is that cyclists ride where the hell they like and aim in a state of rage at all pedestrians while ringing their bell loudly, the concept of avoiding people being foreign to them.”
“I read the 'Old Testament' all the way through when I was about 13 and was horrified. A few months afterwards I read 'The Origin Of Species', hallucinating very mildly because I was in bed with flu at the time. Despite that, or because of that, it all made perfect sense.”
“I think when people mean that Discworld books have become darker they really mean the series is growing up. In 'The Colour of Magic' most of the city is set alight. It's a joke, in much the same way that the Earth is destroyed almost at the start of Douglas Adams's 'The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.'”
Terry Pratchett Quotes
“Genius is always allowed some leeway, once the hammer has been pried from its hands and the blood has been cleaned up.”
