Discworld fandom: do you have quotes that really stick with you and give you hope and strength? Or just favorite funny ones? What are they? I’m looking for more to illustrate over at my art blog ( @northlight0) since I had so much fun with the one I did for the Glorious 25th.

There are hardly any excesses of the most crazed psychopath that cannot easily be duplicated by a normal, kindly family man who just comes in to work every day and has a job to do.

“Wait,” said Mort, wretchedly. “It’s not fair. Can’t you stop it?”

FAIR? said Death. WHO SAID ANYTHING ABOUT FAIR?

Mort (both the character and book) will always hold a special place in my heart as my first introduction to Discworld, so I felt obligated to draw the man of the hour in all his awkward glory.

‘Oh, I understand,’ said the old man.  ‘…

‘Oh, I understand,’ said the old man.  ‘We all rage against the gods sometimes.’

Hey guys remember when there was this character named Reg Shoe who was just a sort of comic relief background dude who was an over the top zealous community activist zombie who was so funny with his well meaning but caricatured protests and slogans about rights for the undead but then you read Night Watch and learn his backstory and then suddenly you’re crying all over yourself and he’s your hero?

Discworld pops up in the strangest of places. In this case in a wonderful book about fonts and typefaces called Just My Type.

“‘Is it true that your life passes before your eyes before you die?’
YES.
‘Ghastly thought, really.’ Rincewind shuddered. ‘Oh, gods, I’ve just had another one. Suppose I am just about to die and this is my whole life passing in front of my eyes?’
I THINK PERHAPS YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND. PEOPLE’S WHOLE LIVES DO PASS IN FRONT OF THEIR EYES BEFORE THEY DIE. THE PROCESS IS CALLED ‘LIVING’.”
