Tell you what, if you read Terry Pratchett I'll rate all your favourite books five stars. Just joking (only four stars). I am a member of TFOHAW and, being proudly independent, I love mushrooms!

'Order and Chaos are in a constant battle for dominance. But Chaos always wins because Chaos is more organised'
'A chocolate you did not want to eat does not count as chocolate. This statement comes from the same train of thought that came up with "food eaten while walking contains no calories"'
"Watch.. This is space. It is sometimes called the final frontier. (Except of course you can't have a final frontier because there'd be nothing for it to be a frontier to, but as frontiers go, it's pretty penultimate)"
"Boom The explosion removed the windows, the door and most of the chimney. It was the sort of thing you'd expect in the Street of Alchemists. The neighbours preferred the explosions, which were at least identifiable and soon over. They were better than the smells which crept up on you."
"You couldn't fish in the river Ankh-- you had to jump up and down on the hooks even to make them sink"
"It wasn't that alchemists hated other alchemists. They just often didn't notice them, or thought they were walruses"
"The ultimate state of knowledge can be described thus: in the beginning there was nothing, which exploded"
"It is well known that any campaign to reduce paperwork only results in more paperwork"
"Always be wary of any helpful item that weighs less than its operating manual. "
"The only reason for walking into the jaws of Death is so's you can steal his gold teeth"
"I'll be more enthusiastic about encouraging thinking outside the box when there's evidence of any thinking going on inside it. "
"It is said that your life flashes before your eyes just before you die. That is true, it's called Life"
"That seems to point up a significant difference between Europeans and Americans. A European says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with me?" An American says: "I can't understand this, what's wrong with him?""
"The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it. "
"Give a man a fire and he's warm for the day. But set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life. "

“Don't believe it when they tell you this book is not for teeneager. I won't describe it. I won't tell you how wonerdful it is or how it changed my life. I will tell you only one thing. Read this book. Set aside three hours on a weekend afternoon and read it. You will not want to stop. The whole time I was reading this book I was visibly shaking with the tension. I wanted to know the ending I didn't want it to end it was the most amazing torture imaginable. Read this book.”
