In memoriam, Terry Pratchett 1948-2015
|Terry Pratchett 1948-2015|
En tussen alle grapjes en woordspelingen door vind je dan ook nog de kritiek op allerlei maatschappelijke ontwikkelingen en parodieën op bekende zaken.
Terry Pratchett leed al sinds 2007 aan Alzheimer, maar bleef schrijven.
Vandaag dus niet maar één citaat, daarmee zou ik Terry Pratchett geen recht doen, maar een aantal mooie of grappige uitspraken van deze zeer gewaardeerde schrijver.
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.
