Farewell Terry

There was widespread sadness when the great and beloved author Terry Pratchett lost his fight with Alzheimer's and passed away on the 12th of March 2015. He was best known for his comic fantasy series ‘discworld’, which included 40 books, he was writing the 41st when he died. He was constantly being awarded during his career, receiving a knighthood in 2009 for ‘services to Literature’, and an honorary degree from the University of Dublin in 2008. He also won the 2001 Carnegie Medal from the British librarians, recognising ‘The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents’ as the year's best children's book published in the U.K.
Here are a few of his famous quotes:
“ If you have enough book space I don’t want to talk to you”
“Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one”
“You get all sorts of people in the library, and the librarian gets them all..”
“If you don’t turn your life into a story, you just become a part of someone else's story”
