Quote:

 

“The whole of life is just like watching a film. Only it’s as though you always get in ten minutes after the big picture has started, and no-one will tell you the plot, so you have to work it out all by yourself from the clues”

Terry Pratchett

 

I wanted to include a funny quote in this challenge and I have a list 50 Terry Pratchett quotes to choose from, any of which would have worked. I still miss the pleasure of opening any new Terry Pratchett work and his death from Alzheimers seemed an especially cruel blow for such a brilliant mind. If you can forgive me for adding another quote here – this is what he had to say about his diagnosis:

“It occurred to me that at one point it was like I had two diseases – one was Alzheimer’s, and the other was knowing I had Alzheimer’s”

 

Today’s nominee is another writer – Sophie!

  2. Sorry to hear about your dad Marie. It is a truly horrible disease. One of our friends was a GP and also an expert on the flora of the Atlas mountains but Alzheimers took it all in just a few months. Awful to witness.

  3. Thank you Darren, I appreciate your concern! He was diagnosed over two years ago and has been holding pretty steady but it is hard to watch and worse to think ahead which I try to avoid! Xx

  4. As you already know I’m also a huge fan of Terry Pratchett and also still miss the thrill of getting a new book of his in my hands. The quote you chose is a brilliant one – life does feel like that at times, doesn’t it? Good thing I love going to the cinema.😉
