There was a TP quote used in an episode of Criminal Minds that I saw yesterday, something about the speed of light, but when it gets where it's going, the darkness is waiting for it.

What book is that from?
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Ive read that very recently so it's gotta be either Small gods, Men at Arms, The Last Continent or the Fifth Elephant
Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change? ~~ Oddball

No matter how fast light travels it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.

was that the quote? I checked L-space and it's from Reaper Man 8)
