In loving memory: Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett 1948-2015
Last Thursday, March 12th, the great writer Terry Prachtett died. He gave us Diskworld, with all the amazing characters, witty jokes and puns and incredible parodies about the things we know.
Highly original and terribly funny, his books were and are loved by many, many people all over the world.
In 2007 Terry Pratchett was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, but he kept on writing.

Last Thursday he died, and I am sure he will be missed by so many people.
So this Sunday not one quote, but a couple of amazing quotes by this great man.

The pen is mightier than the sword, if the sword is very short and the pen is very sharp. 

They say a little knowlegde is a dangerous thing, but not half as bad as a lot of ignorance. 

Most Gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don't find out til too late that he has been playing with two queens all along. 

Build a man a fire, and he will be warm for a day, set a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life. 

It is often said that before you die, your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It is called living. 

If cats looked like frogs we'd realize what nasty, cruel little bastards they are. Style. That's what people remember.

“I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
Death thought about it.

CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE

If you have enough book space, I don't want to talk to you.

Don't think of it as dying, said DEATH, Just think of it as leaving early to avoid the rush.
