Terry Pratchett
“Letitia! What a name. Halfway between a salad and a sneeze.”
Terry Pratchett, I Shall Wear Midnight

Terry Pratchett
“Evil begins when you begin to treat people as things.”
Terry Pratchett, I Shall Wear Midnight

Tina Fey
“Amy Poehler was new to SNL and we were all crowded into the seventeenth-floor writers' room, waiting for the Wednesday night read-through to start. [...] Amy was in the middle of some such nonsense with Seth Meyers across the table, and she did something vulgar as a joke. I can't remember what it was exactly, except it was dirty and loud and "unladylike",
Jimmy Fallon [...] turned to her and in a faux-squeamish voice said, "Stop that! It's not cute! I don't like it."
Amy dropped what she was doing, went black in the eyes for a second, and wheeled around on him. "I don't fucking care if you like it." Jimmy was visibly startled. Amy went right back to enjoying her ridiculous bit.
With that exchange, a cosmic shift took place. Amy made it clear that she wasn't there to be cute. She wasn't there to play wives and girlfriends in the boys' scenes. She was there to do what she wanted to do and she did not fucking care if you like it.”
Tina Fey, Bossypants

Terry Pratchett
“And sin, young man, is when you treat people like things.”
Terry Pratchett, Carpe Jugulum

Terry Pratchett
“She was not, herself, hugely in favor of motherhood in general. Obviously it was necessary, but it wasn't exactly difficult. Even cats managed it. But women acted as if they'd been given a medal that entitled them to boss people around. It was as if, just because they'd got the label which said "mother", everyone else got a tiny part of the label that said "child"...”
Terry Pratchett, Carpe Jugulum
