The Colour of Magic - Terry Pratchett,Nigel Planer

'I can see into your mind, false wizard! Am I not a dryad? Do you not know that what you belittle by the name tree is but the mere four-dimensional analogue of a whole multidimensional universe which – no, I can see you do not. I should have realized that you weren't a real wizard when I saw you didn't have a staff.'

Thief of Time (Discworld, #26) - Terry Pratchett

The Auditors are great.

 

'Understood, said one of the incarnate ones. 'We know the way. We will lead.'

It walked into the door

The Auditors clustered around the door for a while, and then one of them glared at Lady LeJean, who smiled.

'Doorknob,' she said.

The Auditor turned back to the door, stared at the brass knob, and then looked the door up and down. It dissolved into dust.

'Doorknob was simpler,' said Lady LeJean.

 

As a matter of fact, Death has never really got the hang of doorknobs either. Or latches.

I just think the world ought to be more sort of organised.”
“That’s just fantasy,” said Twoflower.
“I know. That’s the trouble.” Rincewind sighed again. It was all very well going on about pure logic and how the universe was ruled by logic and the harmony of numbers, but the plain fact of the matter was that the disc was manifestly traversing space on the back of a giant turtle and the gods had a habit of going round to atheists’ houses and smashing their windows.

 

The more the worlds change, huh *grin*

The Discworld offers sights far more impressive than those found in universes built by Creators with less imagination but more mechanical aptitude.

 

These world descriptions kill me.

 

The disc gods themselves, despite the splendour of the world below them, are seldom satisfied. It is embarrassing to know that one is a god of a world that only exists because every improbability curve must have its far end; especially when one can peer into other dimensions at worlds whose Creators had more mechanical aptitude than imagination No wonder, then, that the disc gods spend more time in bickering than in omnicognizance.

 

I can't stop laughing. Oh, and luggage wins the BAMF crown so far.

This was known as the Big Bang hypothesis.
