My life philosophy in a nutshell.
'It's good. You've got the swing and everything.'
THANK YOU, MISS FLITWORTH.
'But why one blade of grass at a time?'
Bill Door regarded the neat row of stalks for some while.
THERE IS ANOTHER WAY?
'You can do lots in one go, you know.'
NO. NO. ONE BLADE AT A TIME. ONE TIME, ONE BLADE.
'You won't cut many that way,' said Miss Flitworth.
EVERY LAST ONE, MISS FLITWORTH.
TRUST ME ON THIS.

'I hate cats.'
Death’s face became a little stiffer, if that were possible. The blue glow in his eye sockets flickered red for an instant.
I SEE, he said. The tone suggested that death was too good for cat-haters. YOU LIKE GREAT BIG DOGS, I IMAGINE.
Despite his deep distrust of magic, [Vimes] quite liked the wizards. They didn’t cause trouble. At least, they didn’t cause his kind of trouble. True, occasionally they fractured the time/space continuum or took the canoe of reality too close to the white waters of chaos, but they never broke the actual law.
