The boy knelt down and peered closely at Carding.
'He's very still,' he said cautiously. 'Is anything bad happening to him?'
'It may be,' said Hakardly, guardedly. 'He's dead.'
'I wish he wasn't.'
'It is a view, I suspect, which he shares.'

In other words, it’s the familiar hot sinking feeling experienced by everyone who has let the waves of their own anger throw them far up on the beach of retribution, leaving them, in the poetic language of the everyday, up shit creek.

It's going to look pretty good, then, isn't it,' said War testily, 'the One Horseman and Three Pedestrians of the Apocralypse.'

His wicked uncle locked him in a cave, you know. He had to set himself up with what came to hand. He had nothing in the whole world but a magic carpet, a magic lamp, a magic ring and a grotto-ful of assorted jewels.'

blue dragons on a gold background, and a terrible feeling stole over you that if you kept on trying to see both types of dragon at once your brains would trickle out of your ears.

Although I could be mistaken,' he added, when she took her hand away. 'Who knows? Who cares? What does it matter?'
They didn't take any notice.
'I'll just go and see if I can find the hat, shall I?' he said.
'Good idea,' murmured Conina.
'I expect I shall get murdered, but I don't mind,' said Rincewind.
'Jolly good,' said Nijel.
'I don't expect anyone will even notice I'm gone,' said Rincewind.
'Fine, fine,' said Conina.

The thief, as will become apparent, was a special type of thief. This thief was an artist of theft. Other thieves merely stole everything that was not nailed down, but this thief stole the nails as well. This thief had scandalised Ankh by taking a particular interest in stealing, with astonishing success, things that were in fact not only nailed down but also guarded by keen-eyed guards in inaccessible strong rooms. There are artists that will paint an entire chapel ceiling; this was the kind of thief that could steal it.

What’s happening?” he squeaked.
A thing with a goblin’s face, harpy’s body and hen’s legs turned its head in a series of little jerks and spoke in a voice like the peristalsis of mountains (although the deep resonant effect was rather spoiled because, of course, it couldn’t close its mouth).
It said: “A Ourcerer is umming! Eee orr ife!”
Rincewind said “Pardon?” But the thing had gone past and was lurching awkwardly across the ancient lawn.*

’m sure I felt the building shaking, too,” said Rincewind, a shade uncertainly. Here in this quiet room, with the fire crackling in the grate, it didn’t seem quite so real.
“A passing tremor. Great A’Tuin hiccuping, um, possibly. A grip on yourself, um, is what you should get. You haven’t been drinking, have you?”

I meant,” said Ipslore, bitterly, “what is there in this world that makes living worthwhile?”
Death thought about it.
CATS, he said eventually, CATS ARE NICE.
“Curse you!”
MANY HAVE, said Death, evenly.

quiet! And listen when I tell you that they drove me out, with their books and their rituals and their Lore! They called themselves wizards, and they had less magic in their whole fat bodies than I have in my little finger! Banished! Me! For showing that I was human! And what would humans be without love?”
RARE, said Death. NEVERTHELESS—
