qotd, instincts

“You see the lighted windows and what you want to think is that there may be many interesting stories behind them, but what you know is that really there are just dull, dull souls, mere consumers of food, who think their instincts are emotions and their tiny lives of more account than a whisper of wind.” 

-- Terry Pratchett, Soul Music


There are interesting stories behind every window. You just have to care enough to ask.

That's very negative for Pratchett.

That's what I thought, too. How about this one, which gets me every time: “It was sad music. But it waved its sadness like a battle flag. It said the universe had done all it could, but you were still alive.”

Maybe he was talking about a Thomas Kinkaid painting. : D
