Not my favourite, but a good one from The Last Continent:

"When it's time to stop living,
I will certainly make Death my number one choice!"

Not a particularly memorable quote but in context it's brilliant.'Dark in here isn't it'. Not a quote as such but a situation laid out by Pterry in Reaperman.I just think that the sequence of Death joining the Klatchian Foreign Legion is absolutely wonderful,in particular when he is trying to get into the fort.

I used to have the Stephen Briggs T-Shirt of that very quote. How I loved my T-shirt. How I refused to wear it to a DiscCon because I thought people would think me sad then got there and realised I would have been considered a lightweight instead! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Here's Stephen Briggs/CMOT website. I don't see that t-shirt available there any longer though.

There's also the PJSM website that has a lot of merchandise.

And not forgetting the Discworld Emporium run by the Cunning Artificer himself. I should add that the Discworld Emporium should have a 'Beware of the Stamps' notice as you'll think they are cute and get just one LBE (Little Brown Envelope) and then you're hooked and have to spend a fortune feeding the habit.

YOU'VE BEEN WARNED! :wink:

Here's one of my favourite quotes, from Interesting Times:

Rincewind could scream for mercy in nineteen languages, and just scream in another forty-four.

Mr Brown goes off to town on the 8:21
But he comes home each evening and he’s ready with his gun

One of mine is from Guards! Guards!

"Strange things afoot, Vimes. Serious complaint about you, I'm afraid," he said. Wonse didn't wear glasses. If he had worn glasses, he'd have peered at Vimes over the top of them.
"Sir?"
"One of your Night Watch men. Seems he arrested the head of the Thieves' Guild."
Vimes swayed a little and tried hard to focus. He wasn't ready for this sort of thing.
"Sorry, sir," he said. "Seem to have lost you there."
"I said, Vimes, that one of your men arrested the head of the Thieves' Guild."
"One of my men?"
"Yes."
Vimes's scattered brain cells tried valiantly to regroup. "A member of the Watch?" he said.
Wonse grinned mirthlessly. "Tied him up and left him in front of the palace. There's a bit of a stink about it, I'm afraid. There was a note. . . . ah . . . here it is . . . 'This man is charged with, Conspiracy to commit Crime, under Section 14 (iii) of the General Felonies Act, 1678, by me, Carrot Ironfoundersson.' "
Vimes squinted at him.
"Fourteen eye-eye-eye?"
"Apparently," said Wonse.
"What does that mean?"
"I really haven't the faintest notion," said Wonse drily. "And what about the name . . . Carrot?"
"But we don't do things like that!" said Vimes. "You can't go around arresting the Thieves' Guild. I mean, we'd be at it all day!"
Have you ever noticed that, just when you think your shot is about to sail into the back of the net, some one moves the goal posts

I've taken to the Tiffany Aching threat "...or there will be a reckoning."

I don't know why I like this so much. Perhaps it's because it plays up to peoples fear of change, which a reckoning hints at the possibility of.

I like this one from Maskerade:

Nanny Ogg could see the future in the froth on a beermug. It invariably showed that she was going to enjoy a refreshing drink which she almost certainly was not going to pay for.
