So, today Terry Pratchett died. Knew it was coming, but.... dammit!

Why is it that the kind of people that the world needs most seem to die, when the type of people who pollute the world with their very existence just seem to linger on, continuing to do damage and reveling in it? Several names of the latter type are springing to mind, but I won't say them here. Not because I am afraid offending anyone, but rather because I just can't bring myself to use their names anywhere near Sir Terry's.

Instead, I'll just honor a great man with some of his quotes that would probably infuriate those people.

"Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one."

"The presence of those seeking the truth is infinitely to be preferred to the presence of those who think they've found it."

"Goodness is about what you do, not who you pray to."

And finally:

"It's not worth doing something unless someone, somewhere, would much rather you weren't doing it."
