The Greatest Lines Of Terry Pratchett

British fantasy author Sir Terence David John "Terry" Pratchett has passed away at the age of 66 after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease.

His death was announced by his publisher on 12 March, with his official Twitter account expressing the moment in a beautiful, succinct passage:

Best known for his Discworld series, Pratchett was a master of conveying complex, philosophical musings in fleeting, beautiful passages. By way of tribute to the great man, we've collected together some of his finest expressions and words of wisdom.
