BSD Fortune - Quotes from Terry Pratchett's Discworld


One of my favourite authors. Creator of the discworld series of books. All quotes on this page are from his books.

Sadly Terry passed away on 12 March 2015.

After his death, his assistant, Rob Wilkins, wrote from the official Terry Pratchett Twitter account:

AT LAST, SIR TERRY, WE MUST WALK TOGETHER.
Terry took Death's arm and followed him through the doors and on to the black desert under the endless night.
The End.

Reddit users organised a tribute by which an HTTP header, "X-Clacks-Overhead: GNU Terry Pratchett", is added to a site's responses, a reference to the Discworld novel Going Postal. This site does that.
