What do you need to make a man?
Iron enough to make a nail,
Lime enough to paint a wall,
Water enough to drown a dog,
Sulphur enough to stop the fleas,
Poison enough to kill a cow,
Potash enough to wash a shirt,
Gold enough to buy a bean,
Silver enough to coat a pin,
Lead enough to ballast a bird,
Phosphor enough to light the town,
Strength enough to build a home,
Time enough to hold a child,
Love enough to break a heart.
- The Wintersmith by Sir Terry Pratchett
Thank you, Sir Terry, for the wonderful books you have written. I don't think there's been a single book of yours which I haven't enjoyed.
