Lubię góry. Ciężar plecaka i równy rytm kroków. Krople deszczu na skórze i drzewa. Podróże, sushi i moją kuchnię. Kocham koty. Dobrą książkę, półsłodkie wino. Leniwe popołudnia. Moją pracę.

Chciałabym być jak Esme Weatherwax, bliżej mi jednak do Agness Nitt - ona miała swoją Perditę, a ja mam moją Usagi...

The greatest tragedy

Moving Pictures, Terry Pratchett

'You know what the greatest tragedy is in the whole world?' said Ginger, not paying him the least attention. 'It's all the people who never find out what it is they really want to do or what it is they're really good at. It's all the sons who become blacksmiths because their fathers were blacksmiths. It's all the people who could be really fantastic flute players who grow old and die without even seeing a musical instrument, so they become bad plougtmen instead. It's all the people with talents who never even find out. Maybe they are never ever born in a time when it's even possible to find out.'
She took a deep breath. 'It's all the people who never get to know what it is they can really be. It's all the wasted chances.'


Sourcery, Terry Pratchett

'Talent just defines what you do,' he said. 'It doesn't define what you are. Deep down, I mean. When you know what you are, you can do anything.'
He thought a bit more and added, 'That's what makes sourcerers so powerful. The important thing is to know what you really are.'


Guards! Guards!, Terry Pratchett

If there was anything that depressed him more than his own cynicism, it was that quite often it still wasn't as cynical as real life.

Virgins and Unicorns

Guards! Guards!, Terry Pratchett

'S'right,' - said another. - 'People think it's a fortune, but they don't reckon on, well, it's not pensionable, there's all the medical expenses, you've got to buy and maintain your own gear -'
'- wear and tear on virgins -' nodded a small fat hunter.
'Yeah, and then there's... what?'
'My speciality is unicorns,' the hunter explained, with embarrassed smile.
'Oh, right.' The first speaker looked like someone who'd always been dying to ask the question. 'I thought they were very rare these days.'
'You're right there. You don't see many unicorns, either.'

The Summoning of Dragon

Guards! Guards!, Terry Pratchett

'(...) The Summoning of Something. This is fun, isn't it! Fourth word. Whole word -'
He peered intently as the Librarian gyrated mysteriously.
'Big thing. Huge big thing. Flapping. Great big flapping leaping thing. Teeth. Huffing. Blowing. Great big huge blowing flapping thing.' Sweat broke out on Carrot's forehead as he tried obediently to understand. 'Sucking fingers. Sucking fingers thing. Burnt. hot. Great big hot blowing flapping thing...'
The Librarian rolled his eyes. Homo sapiens? You could keep it.
