Quotes of the Day

From "Snuff" by Terry Pratchett, HarperCollins, New York, 2011:

"I tell you, commander, it's true that some of the most terrible things in the world are done by people who think, genuinely think, that they're doing it for the best, especially if there's some god involved."
- p.185

"...good people have no business being so bad. Goodness is about what you do. Not what you pray to."
- p.186

"What was a policeman, if not a civilian with a uniform and badge? But they tended to use the term these days as a way of describing people who were not policemen. It was a dangerous habit: once policemen stopped being civilians the only other thing they could be was soldiers."
- p.207
