I'm slowly getting to know Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels, and today I felt like sharing a few quotes from the books I've read. Enjoy. :-)
"Granny had counted the temples with a thoughtful look in her eyes; gods were always demanding that their followers acted other than according to their true natures, and the human fallout this caused made plenty of work for witches."
"His hair was more hairy, his clothes more clothy, his boots the epitome of bootness. It made your head ache just to look at him."
"The ability of skinny old ladies to carry huge loads is phenomenal. Studies have shown that an ant can carry one hundred times its own weight, but there is no known limit to the lifting power of the average tiny eighty-year-old Spanish peasant grandmother."
"Who's playing the maracas?"
MARACAS? I DON'T NEED... MARACAS.
"The idea that Winter could actually be enjoyable would never have occurred to Ramtop people, who had eighteen different words for snow.*
*All of them, unfortunately, unprintable."
"Genuan cooking, like the best cooking everywhere in the multiverse, has been evolved by people who had to make desperate use of ingredients their masters didn’t want. No-one would even try a bird’s nest unless they had to. Only hunger would make a man taste his first alligator. No-one would eat a shark’s fin if they were allowed to eat the rest of the shark."
"In my experience, what every true artist wants, really wants, is to be paid."
"She walked quickly through the darkness with the frank stride of someone who was at least certain that the forest, on this damp and windy night, contained strange and terrible things and she was it."
