Writer Terry Pritchett died this past week. The following are a few quotes to remember him by, and to inform our own journey through life:

  • “It’s not worth doing something unless you were doing something that someone, somewhere, would much rather you weren’t doing.”
  • “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.” — Monstrous Regimen
  • “The enemy isn’t men, or women, it’s bloody stupid people and no one has the right to be stupid.” — Monstrous Regiment
  • “Sometimes it’s better to light a flame thrower than curse the darkness.”
  • “Evil begins when you begin to treat people as things.” — I Shall Wear Midnight
  •  “So much universe, and so little time.”
  • “It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It’s called living.”

Here’s what Prachett had on his iPod for his last moments of life: Spem In Alium (Thomas Tallis) - Tallis Scholars. 9+-Minute Audio
