I COULD MURDER A CURRY
- Mort

Lots of quotes from Discworld Death, but I couldn't really go past this one.

It's part of Terry Pratchett's genius that he could make the grim reaper one of literatures more fascinating characters.

Hehe! Just about any scene with Death is brilliant, but I do like that one too!

Also another

Death is not a bad guy, he is just remarkably good at his job

I've only read a handful of Discworld books, but Death is definitely my favorite character so far.

He's such a fantastic character and appears in nearly every Discworld book... so you have plenty more of him to look forward to :D

I find the implications of that statement darkly hilarious.  "In nearly every Discworld book, something or somebody's gonna die." XD

“Picture a tall, dark figure, surrounded by cornfields...
NO, YOU CAN'T RIDE A CAT. WHO EVER HEARD OF THE DEATH OF RATS RIDING A CAT? THE DEATH OF RATS WOULD RIDE SOME KIND OF DOG.
Picture more fields, a great horizon-spanning network of fields, rolling in gentle waves...
DON'T ASK ME I DON'T KNOW. SOME KIND OF TERRIER, MAYBE.
...fields of corn, alive, whispering in the breeze...
RIGHT, AND THE DEATH OF FLEAS CAN RIDE IT TOO. THAT WAY YOU KILL TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE.
...awaiting the clockwork of the seasons.
METAPHORICALLY.”

Gosh, I love Death so much, as creepy as to non-discworlders it may sound :)

Hahaha! Death is one of Terry's best characters... something a little hard to explain to anyone who hasn't read his books :D
Cheers!

I love Death's library's description of the dangerous and non-dangerous flora and fauna of XXX (not..., really NOT Australia!) in THE LAST CONTINENT..., the former being a huge pile of books that bury poor Death, the latter being a single sheet of paper reading 'some of the sheep'!

Haha! Being an Australian and a Pratchett fan, I have often referred to that scene myself :D

He loves cats, so he's okay in my book!
