Pratchett is my favorite author. my personal favorite quote by him is

“The reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money.

Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.

But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that'd still be keeping his feet dry in ten years' time, while the poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet.

This was the Captain Samuel Vimes 'Boots' theory of socioeconomic unfairness.”

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Philippians 4:4-7
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.



Just some gay wholesome Christianity while you wait for me to get out the Old Testament, which is made of pure fucking metal.

"Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes."

"If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason."

"If at first you don't succeed: Cheat. Repeat until caught. Then lie."

"When I die, I hope it's peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather, and not screaming in terror like his passengers."


Jack Handey used to write the Deep Thoughts segment for SNL, and he kept adding more to his website even after those ended. I wasted a day binging them once many years ago, but looks like you have to buy them as a book now. Although I'm sure they're around somewhere if you look for them.

Since we're doing a Bible theme, I like Ecclesiastes 2:16:

"For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered; the days have already come when both have been forgotten. Like the fool, the wise too must die." 

I'm not religious, but I still re-read the Book of Ecclesiastes every now and then.

"A coward dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant taste of death but once. It seems to me most strange that men should fear, seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come." - William Shakespeare, from Julius Caesar "Don't try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say." - Barbara Kingsolver. Seems like a good one that wannabe writers especially should keep in mind. "Man plans, and God laughs." - an old Yiddish saying that seems fitting for the past year. And most of history, I guess.
