"Always remember that the crowd that applauds your coronation is the same crowd that will applaud your beheading. People like a show."
- Terry Pratchett - Going Postal (via king-felicia)
"You see, I believe in freedom…Not many people do, although they will of course protest otherwise. And no practical definition of freedom would be complete without the freedom to take the consequences. Indeed, it is the freedom upon which all the others are based."
- Lord Vetinari, in Terry Pratchett’s Going Postal (via jamesphillimoresumbrella)
