Terry Pratchett ist heute im Alter von nur 66 Jahren nach langer Alzheimer-Erkrankung gestorben. Great A'Tuin has stopped, Terry went with the Old High Ones. Sad day. Von Terry Pratchetts Facebooks: „It is with immeasurable sadness that we announce that author Sir Terry Pratchett has died. The world has lost one of its brightest, sharpest minds. Rest in peace Sir Terry Pratchett.“
Laut Guardian starb Pratchett „with his cat sleeping on his bed surrounded by his family on Thursday“.
„The presence of those seeking the truth is infinitely to be preferred to the presence of those who think they’ve found it.“
„'Don't think of it as dying', said Death. 'Just think of of it as leaving early to avoid the rush.'“
„Imagination, not Intelligence, made us human.“
„So much universe, and so little time.“
