Was that what it was really like to be alive? the feeling of darkness dragging you forward?

Wizards don’t believe in gods in the same way that most people don’t find it necessary to believe in, say, tables. They know they’re there, they know they’re there for a purpose, they’d probably agree that they have a place in a well-organised universe, but they wouldn’t see the point of believing, of going around saying “o great table, without whom we are as naught.” anyway, either the gods are there whether you believe in them or not, or exist only as a function of the belief, so either way you might as well ignore the whole business and, as it were, eat off your knees.
Terry Pratchett

Five exclamation marks, the sure sign of an insane mind.
Terry Pratchett

In the first book of my Discworld series, published more than 26 years ago, I introduced Death as a character; there was nothing particularly new about this – death has featured in art and literature since medieval times, and for centuries we have had a fascination with the Grim Reaper.

After a while the senior wrangler said, “do you know, I read the other day that every atom in your body is changed every seven years? new ones keep getting attached and old ones keep on dropping off. It goes on all the time. Marvelous, really.”

the senior wrangler could do to a conversation what it takes quite thick treacle to do to the pedals of a precision watch.

“yes? what happens to the old ones?” said ridcully, interested despite himself.

“dunno. They just float around in the air, I suppose, until they get attached to someone else.”

the archchancellor looked affronted.

“what, even wizards?”

“oh, yes. Everyone. It’s part of the miracle of existence.”

“is it? sounds like bad hygiene to me,” said the archchancellor. “i suppose there’s no way of stopping it?”

“i shouldn’t think so,” said the senior wrangler, doubtfully. “i don’t think you’re supposed to stop miracles of existence.”

“but that means everythin’ is made up of everythin’ else,” said ridcully.

“yes. Isn’t it amazing?.

Terry Pratchett

Belief sloshes around in the firmament like lumps of clay spiralling into a potter’s wheel. That’s how gods get created, for example. They clearly must be created by their own believers, because a brief resume of the lives of most gods suggests that their origins certainly couldn’t be divine. They tend to do exactly the things people would do if only they could, especially when it comes to nymphs, golden showers, and the smiting of your enemies.
Terry Pratchett

That’s not fair, you know. If we knew when we were going to die, people would lead better lives.”

if people knew when they were going to die, I think they probably wouldn’t live at all.

Terry Pratchett

All things that are, are ours. But we must care. For if we do not care, we do not exist. If we do not exist, then there is nothing but blind oblivion. And even oblivion must end someday. Lord, will you grant me just a little time? for the proper balance of things. To return what was given. For the sake of prisoners and the flight of birds.

death took a step backwards.

it was impossible to read expression in azrael’s features.

death glanced sideways at the servants.

lord, what can the harvest hope for, if not for the care of the reaper man?.

Terry Pratchett

There is a plain under a dim sky. It is covered with gentle rolling curves that might remind you of something else if you saw it from a long way away, and if you did see it from a long way away you’d be very glad that you were, in fact, a long way away.

three gray figures floated just above it. Exactly what they were can’t be described in normal language. Some people might call them cherubs, although there was nothing rosy-cheeked about them. They might be rumored among those who see to it that gravity operates and that time stays separate from space. Call them auditors. Auditors of reality.

they were in conversation without speaking. They didn’t need to speak. They just changed reality so that they had spoken.

one said, it has never happened before. Can it be done?

one said, it will have to be done. There is a personality. Personalities come to an end. Only forces endure.

it said this with satisfaction.

one said, besides… There have been irregularities. Where you get personality, you get irregularities. Well-known fact.

one said, he has worked inefficiently?

one said, no. We can’t get him there.

one said, that is the point. The word is him. Becoming a personality is inefficient. We don’t want it to spread. Supposing gravity developed a personality? supposing it decided to like people?

one said, got a crush on them, that sort of thing?

one said, in a voice that would have been even chillier if it was not already at absolute zero, no.

one said, sorry. Just my little joke.

one said, besides, sometimes he wonders about his job. Such speculation is dangerous.

one said, no argument there.

one said, then we are agreed?

one, who seemed to have been thinking about something, said, just one moment. Did you not just use the singular pronoun “my?” not developing a personality, are you?

one said, guiltily, who? us?

one said, where there is personality, there is discord.

one said, yes. Yes. Very true.

one said, all right. But watch it in future.

one said, then we are agreed?

they looked up at the face of azrael, outlined against the sky. In fact, it was the sky.

azrael nodded, slowly.

one said, very well. Where is this place?

one said, it is the discworld. It rides through space on the back of a giant turtle.

one said, oh, one of that sort. I hate them.

one said, you’re doing it again. You said “i.”

one said, no! no! I didn’t! I never said “i!”… Oh, bugger…

it burst into flame and burned in the same way that a small cloud of vapor burns, quickly and with no residual mess. Almost immediately, another one appeared. It was identical in appearance to its vanished sibling.

one said, let that be a lesson. To become a personality is to end. And now… Let us go.

Terry Pratchett

Death didn’t happen like I expected it to. There was no grim reaper, no chorus of angels, no army of demons. And my life didn’t flash before my eyes. Death was the color of softness, a delicate green under a thin film of baby powder. There was nothing but soft random thoughts and picture, drifting through me like a child’s breath blowing through a dandelion after making a wish. And as I died, I was held by my love. I wanted to soak up her love and smuggle it with me to wherever my soul was headed.

Most species do their own evolving, making it up as they go along, which is the way nature intended. And this is all very natural and organic and in tune with mysterious cycles of the cosmos, which believes that there’s nothing like millions of years of really frustrating trial and error to give a species moral fiber and, in some cases, backbone.
Terry Pratchett

I’ve got money!” eve exclaimed in a frantic frenzy of hope, her eyes dancing wildly with the notion that there was some way out of this. “i mean, I don’t know what use money is to the grim reaper, but i’ve got a ton of cash! it’s in a hat box under my bed! i’ve got a bright red lexus in the garage, i’ve got my engagement ring upstairs, it’s real gold… there must be something we can trade off with…”
“you can’t bribe me away, i’m afraid,” said mr. Azrael. “money means nothing where I come from.

You fear to die?
“it’s not that I don’t want… I mean, i’ve always…it’s just that life is a habit that’s hard to break…

Lilliana turned around slowly. “what happened? you seemed so relaxed and happy when we were in the desert, like you were a normal person and not the grim reaper. Now you’re extra…reapy.”
she cleared her throat. “also, you’ve sprouted horns.”
of course he had.
she eyed him like he was a rabid hellhound, and when her gaze dropped to his feet, he barked, “what are you doing?” “checking for hooves.”
he was pretty sure his horns grew larger. So did his dick. Irritation that he couldn’t control his own body, let alone his emotions, pissed him off even more. Made him…as she put it, extra reapy.
Larissa Ione

I am not cute. I am the dreaded Grim Reaper. People fear me, you know. There’s a whole song about it.

Danny Elfman

Sometimes death lurks after them for days, weeks, or even months, waiting for their time… Sometimes it doesn’t, and i’ve often raced that omnipresent reaper to one portion of its work.

Belief is one of the most powerful organic forces in the multiverse. It may not be able to move mountains, exactly. But it can create someone who can.

people get exactly the wrong idea about belief. They think it works back to front. They think the sequence is, first object, then belief. In fact, it works the other way.

Terry Pratchett

Life is not the end, and death is just the beginning…
Rebecca McNutt

Handsome enough’ is this Grim Reaper, Who can snuff all these ‘brief candles,’ every fluttering soul sucking the air, from this hall” -The Vampire Lestat

The landscape was snow and green ice on broken mountains. These weren’t old mountains, worn down by time and weather and full of gentle ski slopes, but young, sulky, adolescent mountains. They held secret ravines and merciless crevices. One yodel out of place would attract, not the jolly echo of a lonely goatherd, but fifty tons of express-delivery snow.
Terry Pratchett
