“Early to rise, early to bed, makes a man healthy, wealthy and dead.” — Terry Pratchett.

Many try to fit themselves into a mold. Conformity, Mama’s boy, adorable girl, and so on. But when have they done different that others haven’t already? For us rebels, this is something we find hard to understand. To us they are already dead. Terry puts this pretty nicely in the above qoute.

Here is one more from the same novel. If you like it go get his book. You won’t regret it. Enjoy.

Terry Pratchett, “The Light Fantastic”

If you are a Harry Potter fan and like Lord of the Rings too, than Terry Pratchett books are a must read. Mean while head over here for some choice quotes, all from “The Light Fantastic”.

If you want some cool nice music to listen, try “The Reason” by Hoobastank. Go get it. This is different from Celine Dions “The Reason“. (Thanks to Thumblina for introducing me to Hoobastank).
