From the DVD commentary, episode 1:
Douglas: Now this graveyard and this church, which is in England, was interesting, because we... I think it was the second location I ever saw in preproduction and we went through a whole process on not being able to film on there because we couldn't get the lights in and it was the wrong schedule and everything else so we looked at on other churches... but eventually we went to film there and I remember that on the night we were filming our amazing DoP [Director of Photography] Gavin Finney said to me, 'Come round the back of this church, there's something I've got to show you.', which I would normally not want to go and do with DoP and he took me round the back and showed me a gravestone, which was Terry Pratchett's aunty, I think it was, who was buried in the grounds of this graveyard. Did you know that?
Neil: I knew once you told me but I didn't know that and I love the weird and beautiful coincidences.

Reading Discworld is wild because one minute you're laughing at lines like "The Fool jingled miserably across the floor", and the next, Sir Terry Pratchett takes out your kneecaps with biting social commentary.

Aziraphale: *gasps* Oh no. It seems that we have only one bed! What ever shall we do
Crowley: You know we can just miracle-
Aziraphale: Alas! We shall have to only adapt to the situation that has presented itself. What shall we ever do
Crowley: Angel it's okay I can just sleep on the-
Aziraphale: Dear me, the only solution must be to sleep together
Crowley, blushing red: *voice cracking* Ok-okay

The Code of the Igors was very strict.
Never Contradict. It was no part of an Igor's job to say things like "No, thur, that'th an artery." The marthter was always right.
Never Complain. An Igor would never say "But that'th a thouthand miles away!"
Never Make Personal Remarks. No Igor would dream of saying anything like "I thould have thomething done about that laugh, if I wath you."
And Never, Ever Ask Questions. Admittedly, Igor knew, that meant never ask BIG questions. "Would thur like a cup of tea around now?" was fine, but "What do you need a hundred virginth for?" or "Where do you expect me to find a brain at thith time of night?" was not. An Igor stood for loyal, dependable, discreet service with a smile, or at least a sort of lopsided grin, or possibly just a curved scar in the right place.

[Sybil] smiled at him.
And then it arose and struck Vimes that, in her own special category, she was quite beautiful; this was the category of all the women, in his entire life, who had ever thought he was worth smiling at.  She couldn’t do worse, but then, he couldn’t do better.  So maybe it balanced out.  She wasn’t getting any younger but then, who was?  And she had style and money and common sense and self-assurance and all the things that he didn’t, and she had opened her heart, and if you let her she could engulf you; the woman was a city.
And eventually, under siege, you did what Ankh-Morpork had always done--unbar the gates, let the conquerors in, and make them your own.
--Terry Pratchett, “Guards! Guards!”

“..that’s one form of magic, of course.”
“What, just knowing things?”
“Knowing things that other people don’t know,” said Granny.

To all the weird little girls. Stay weird. Stay strong.

"This I choose to do. If there is a price, this I choose to pay. If it is my death then I choose to die. Where this takes me, there I choose to go. I choose. This i choose to do."
It wasn't a spell except in her own head. But if you couldn't make spells work in your own head you couldn't make them work at all.
~Tiffany Aching/Terry Pratchett-Wintersmith

gnu terry pratchett, you would have loved how the ceremonial arson of a giant straw goat during a dark, cold nordic country’s darkest, coldest month united thousands of strangers in visceral, unadulterated joy during a pandemic. truly the embodiment of the falling angel (age-old joke about sacrificial lambs to merciless external forces that became a little too real) meeting the rising ape (monky brain love fire).

"You are in favor of the common people?" said Dragon mildly.
"The common people?" said Vimes. "They're nothing special. They're no different from the rich and powerful except they've got no money or power. But the law should be there to balance things up a bit. So I suppose I've got to be on their side."
"A man married to the richest woman in the city?"
Vimes shrugged. "The Watchman's helmet isn't like a crown. Even when you take it off you're still wearing it."

Tweet by John Rogers: “I'm an infamously even-tempered man, but if you take Terry Pratchett's name in vain for some small-minded bigoted fuckwittery I will push you down a set of fucking stairs and laugh at the bounce.”

All these complex reading order flow charts for where to start Discworld .Don’t people know the best way to star Discworld is to randomly purchase a deeply discounted copy of a random book in the middle of the series somewhere, love it and only then discover you’ve gotten yourself into a 41 book series?
