"It's so eerie sometimes, you read a book from the 90s and there it is, the PERFECT quote for what is going on TODAY - and it's from 1848!

For you English-speakers:
Epidemics are like giant danger signs on which the statesman can read clearly that his people's development is disrupted in a way that not even careless politics may ignore."

Terry Pratchett
“Young lady, drink levels all mankind. It is the ultimate democrat if you like that sort of thing. A drunk beggar is as drunk as a lord, and so is a lord.”
Terry Pratchett, Unseen Academicals

Douglas Adams
“One of the things that people who don't know anything about white rhinoceroses find most interesting about them is their colour.
It isn't white.
Not even remotely. It's a rather handsome dark grey. Not even a sort of pale grey that might arguably pass as an off-white, just plain dark grey. People therefore assume that zoologists are either perverse or colour-blind, but it's not that, it's that they are illiterate.
"White" is a mistranslation of the Afrikaans word "weit" meaning "wide", and it refers to the animal's mouth, which is wider than that of the black rhino.”
Douglas Adams, Last Chance to See

Terry Pratchett
“Looks like a great big seashell to me,” was the opinion of Granny Weatherwax. The kitten You padded around the giant thing, sniffing daintily at it. (Greebo was hiding behind the saucepans on the top shelf. Tiffany checked.)”
Terry Pratchett, Wintersmith

Terry Pratchett
“From the best chair in the room of ornaments, a large gray cat watched Tiffany with a half-open eye that glinted with absolute evil. Nanny had referred to him as “Greebo...don’t mind him, he’s just a big old softie,” which Tiffany knew enough to interpret as “he’ll have his claws in your leg if you go anywhere near him.”
Terry Pratchett, Wintersmith

Terry Pratchett
“I think he played a lute. Or maybe it was a lyre."
"Ach, weel, that’ll suit us fine," said Daft Wullie. "We’re experts at looting an’ then lyin’ aboot it.”
Terry Pratchett, Wintersmith
