Terry Pratchett
“Of all the forces in the universe, the hardest to overcome is the force of habit.”
Terry Pratchett, Johnny and the Dead

Chris Wooding
“Our heroes have arrived, then," the stranger said, his voice a soft, bubbly murmur.

"Excuse me?" Poison queries.

The odd creature put down his rod in a little wooden cradle that rested next to him and got up from the edge of the jetty. He looked them over with his vast, yellowish eyes.

"Hmm," he said gloomily. "You don't seem a bad bunch." He jostled past them and began to shuffle back towards his house. "At least you're not the typical muscle-bound warrior, beautiful sorceress, and amusing thief sidekick. By the waters, did that become stale fast.”
Chris Wooding, Poison

Brian Ruckley
“But past service counted for little these days. The world, and those who governed it, moved too quickly to be carrying such burdens as memory and gratitude.”
Brian Ruckley, The Edinburgh Dead

Robin Sloan
“You know, I'm really starting to think the whole world is just a patchwork quilt of crazy little cults, all with their own secret spaces, their own records, their own rules.”
Robin Sloan, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

Terry Pratchett
“You had to deal every day with people who were foolish and lazy and untruthful and downright unpleasant, and you could certainly end up thinking that the world would be considerably improved if you gave them a slap.”
Terry Pratchett, Wintersmith
