Some words of wisdom

fantasyweekv1

We could not let Fantasy Week go by without some words from the immortal Sir Terry Pratchett.

Best known for his witty Discworld series, his books are unmatched when it comes to easy reads full of magic, humour and adventure.

Not only are his books funny, they also impart wisdom you can use in your everyday life! We have flicked through our many well-worn Pratchett books, and gathered together some of our favourite Discworld book quotes for you below:

Sir Terry Pratchett, after an eight year battle against Alzheimer's, has passed away surrounded by his family (and sleeping cat).

Pratchett was a literary legend with over 70 published works under his belt, and a devoted worldwide following. His joyful humour and playfulness with the English language will ensure his novels stand the test of time. (In this humble blogger's opinion, his Night Watch books from the Discworld series should be considered a masterpiece)

There are no words to accurately describe this loss. So, we will simply share the final tweets of the great man himself:

3:06PM 12 March 2015: AT LAST, SIR TERRY, WE MUST WALK TOGETHER

3:07PM 12 March 2015: Terry took Death's arm and followed him through the doors and on to the black desert under the endless night.

3:07PM 12 March 2015: The End.

Rest in Peace, Sir Terry.
