In memory of Terry Pratchett

As you're probaby all aware by now, one of my favourite authors was reported dead today.

Sir Terry Pratchett has always been a huge inspiration for me as an author and later as a human being. He was one of the writers who helped me fall in love not only with reading but with words. No one could turn a phrase like Terry Pratchett.

In this vein, here are five Terry Pratchett quotes. If you base a post around one you can claim +15 points for your character on updates.

"Most gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don't find out until too late that he's been playing with two queens all along."

"He was the sort of person who stood on mountaintops during thunderstorms in wet copper armour shouting 'All the Gods are bastards."

"It wasn't a large village, and wouldn't have shown up on a map of the mountains. It barely showed up on a map of the village."

"He could think in italics. Such people need watching. Preferably from a safe distance."

"You can't give her that!' she screamed. 'It's not safe!'
It's a sword. said the Hogfather. They're not meant to be safe.
'She's a child!' shouted Crumley.
It's educational.
'What if she cuts herself?'
That will be an important lesson."

Everyone may claim a further +15 points for all characters on updates, as well as a Magcial Greebo Plushie for their bank. Take the plushie into the Marsh for an extra special monster writing prompt! Once you have used your plushie, it will no longer be magical, but you can still keep it if you wish :)
