Terry Pratchett’s a clever thing

“There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world.  There are those who, when presented with a glass that is exactly half full, say: this glass is half full.  And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What’s up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don’t think so.  My glass was full!  And it was a bigger glass! Who’s been pinching my beer? And at the other end of the bar the world is full of the other type of person, who has a broken glass, or a glass that has been carelessly knocked over (usually by one of the people calling for a larger glass) or who had no glass at all, because he was at the back of the crowd and had failed to catch the barman’s eye.  ”    ―      Terry Pratchett,        The Truth

  1. Haha, that’s fantastic, Shan! Are you getting into some Pratchett over the holidays? I’m putting Discworld on my to-be-read list.

      Yes I am. I’m onto my second Terry Pratchett book now. I’ve been reading alot of fantasy and sci-fi books. I tried to read Kalinda Ashton’s book “the danger game” but after reading so much fantasy I just couldn’t get into the contemporary fiction. Although she has unique style, Melbourne and the Australian-ness just seemed boring. Have you read it?
