How it's taken me this long to come up with this one I'll never know as it's something I've been longing to drop into a normal conversation with a none Pratchett reader,I'm assured that they do exist.I think that they would be dumbstruck if you came out with.......an anthropomorphic personification.

I was watching a nature program on TV with my mother and she commented that nature was cruel - I automatically replied -"no wonder they call her a mother".

My mother replied - "What do you mean by that!" so I got out of it by saying it was a Terry Pratchett quote. :lol:

I think it was a Monty Python quote originally. It was in the Hollywood Bowl film.
And I can't remember which Discworld book it's said.

Isn't it Guards! Guards!? When Sam is demanding Harga serves him the stewed, vile, overboiled 3 month old coffee he's used to getting instead of the 'love in a canoe' stuff he's suddenly pouring in case the King comes in?

This one has always made me smile hope its ok to post :

The vermine is a small black and white relative of the lemming, found in the cold Hublandish regions. Its skin is rare and highly valued, especially by the vermine itself; the selfish little bastard will do anything rather than let go of it.

Can someone extract the entirety of Color of Magic, Mort, Guards! Guards!, Reaper Man, Men At Arms, Hogfather, Feet of Clay, Jingo, Soul Music, Interesting Times, Thief of Magic, The Truth, The Fifth Elephant, Thud!, Making Money, and Small Gods?
I think those are the TP books I liked, and should be poured onto the thread (for those asking, the one I didn't like was -ing Equal Rites). They work. Good quotes. Not the right order, but good quotes.

What's your take on Pyramids? I notice that never got a mention. I liked the bit in the doctor's in that book. I forget exactly how it goes, but the doctor diagnoses Pteppic as being dead at one point. :lol:

Never read Pyramids.
Sorries.
I intend to, however.
