    Peter, of course you have not upset me. I think I have read all of Terry Pratchett's books and enjoyed them thoroughly. I mourn the passing of those who have brought great joy and laughter into my life, but I am by no means upset with you or anyone who reminds me of people such as these. Just give thanks that I 'knew' them through their writing.

    Mary

    That which is good for all and any one,
    For whomsoever- that is good for me. . .
    What I hold good for self, I should for all.
    Only Law Universal is true law.

    He who abhors and shuns the light of the Sun, He who refuses to behold with respect the living creation of God, He who leads the good to wickedness, He who makes the meadows waterless and the pastures desolate,He who lets fly his weapon against the innocent, An enemy of my faith, a destroyer of Thy principles is he, O Lord!

    Zoroaster

    As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives. Henry David Thoreau

    I believe that if life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade...

    And try to find somebody whose life has given them vodka, and have a party.

    This has to be the best qoute out the bible, still parts are law today. This is not directed at anyone. I just love it.

    "There are six things that the LORD strongly dislikes, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.

    — Proverbs 6:16–19

    Peace

    The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

    (err, actually I have been to Hell. It's a town in southern Michigan and the road to get there is paved with asphalt, just like most other roads around the world)
