“Just erotic. Nothing kinky. It's the difference between using a feather and using a chicken.”
Terry Pratchett, Eric

Terry Pratchett
“The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.”
Terry Pratchett, Diggers

Hayao Miyazaki

Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky (Discworld, #32)
