Yesterday was Terry Pratchett’s birthday so I decided that a Terry Pratchett quote was required. Pratchett is one of my favourite authors, I have read all of his Discworld books and many others. I used to eagerly await the latest publication and have the book preordered to either be delivered or picked up. In 2013 I read all the current published Discworld novels in publication order and loved every minute, it also helped me get through a particularly brutal Jury Duty case. So here is the quote…
“Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one.”
Terry Pratchett (1998)
