‘Goodbye,’ Mort said, and was surprised to find a lump in his throat. ‘It’s such an unpleasant word, isn’t it?’
QUITE SO. Death grinned because, as has so often been remarked, he didn’t have much option. But possibly he meant it, this time.
I PREFER AU REVOIR, he said.
(From Mort)

Rest in Peace Sir Terry Pratchett, one of the most important authors of all time and a hugely influential figure in the world of witchcraft. Through your hilarious characters and observations of human life (and particularly those involved in witchcraft and the occult), you taught us all that one can feel deep passion and respect for anything – without ever taking it too seriously.

Au Revoir, and I hope you had some snappy exchanges with Death when He came for you. You’re probably the only person who could ever out-quip Death Himself.
