De beste quotes van Terry Pratchett

door Debbie van der Zande 1 reactie
Terry Pratchett was niet alleen de bedenker van de meest bizarre boeken, hij was ook filosoof. Zijn quotes, uit de Schijfwereldboeken, maar ook elders, zijn vaak hilarisch, en altijd raak.

"The whole of life is just like watching a film. Only it’s as though you always get in ten minutes after the big picture has started, and no-one will tell you the plot, so you have to work it out all yourself from the clues."

"Real stupidity beats artificial intelligence every time."

"I’d rather be a rising ape than a falling angel."

"It’s not worth doing something unless someone, somewhere, would much rather you weren’t doing it."

"Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one."

"Fantasy is an exercise bicycle for the mind. It might not take you anywhere, but it tones up the muscles that can."

"The presence of those seeking the truth is infinitely to be preferred to the presence of those who think they’ve found it."

"It’s still magic even if you know how it’s done."

"There are times in life when people must know when not to let go. Balloons are designed to teach small children this."

"The entire universe has been neatly divided into things to (a) mate with, (b) eat, (c) run away from, and (d) rocks."

"If you don’t turn your life into a story, you just become a part of someone else’s story."

"The truth may be out there, but the lies are inside your head."

“DON'T THINK OF IT AS DYING," said Death. "JUST THINK OF IT AS LEAVING EARLY TO AVOID THE RUSH.”

"Goodness is about what you do. Not who you pray to."

"I have no use for people who have learned the limits of the possible."

"So much universe, and so little time."
