“Fantasy is an Exercise Bike…”


Terry Pratchett, creator of the fantasy universe Discworld, died on Wednesday. He was only 66 and suffered from early onset Alzheimer’s disease for 8 years, but he kept writing and publishing anyway. Two quotes to remember him by:

Fantasy is an exercise bicycle for the mind. It might not take you anywhere, but it tones up the muscles that can.

And something his early death has me contemplating a lot:

So much universe, and so little time.

Thanks for the reminder, Terry. Rest in Peace.
