Terry Pratchett quotes

Cruising the web today and came across a site, lspace, recording some of Pratchett’s quotes from alt.fan.pratchett… Jeez he’s funny.

It’s an old magical principle — it’s even filtered down into RPG systems — that magic, while taking a lot of effort, can be ‘stored’ — in a staff, for example. No doubt a wizard spends a little time each day charging up his staff, although you go blind if you do it too much, of course.
— (Terry Pratchett, alt.fan.pratchett)

Oh dear, I’m feeling political today. It’s just that it’s dawned on me that ‘zero tolerance’ only seems to mean putting extra police in poor, run-down areas, and not in the Stock Exchange.
— (Terry Pratchett, alt.fan.pratchett)

And one that will sum up most of my life, and may even appear on my tombstone, provided I get a tombstone…

The trouble is that things *never* get better, they just stay the same, only more so.
— (Terry Pratchett, Eric)

The gods of the Disc have never bothered much about judging the souls of the dead, and so people only go to hell if that’s where they believe, in their deepest heart, that they deserve to go. Which they won’t do if they don’t know about it. This explains why it is so important to shoot missionaries on sight.
