Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

- Terry Pratchett

Didn't know you were a Pratchett fan, Reid.

All thinking people are Pratchett fans.

Reid Farmer said...

I can't count myself a fan, I have read very little of his and that so long ago I can't remember the titles. I couldn't resist this quote when I stumbled on it, though.

Karen, can you recommend some titles for me? I'd love to join the ranks of the thinking

If you want something seasonally apt, Reid, I like both Hogfather and Wintersmith quite a bit.

Don't get me started on Marxist quotes:

"One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know. Then we tried to remove the tusks, but they were embedded in so firmly, we couldn't budge them. Of course in Alabama, the Tuscaloosa."

"Africa is God's Country - and He can have it!"
