Quote by Terry Pratchett
In the first book of my Discworld series, published more than 26 years ago, I introduced Death as a character there was nothing particularly new about this - death has featured in art and literature since medieval times, and for centuries we have had a fascination with the Grim Reaper.
This quote is from Terry Pratchett, the acclaimed author of the Discworld series. He explains that the inclusion of Death as a character in his first book is not a novel concept. Death has been a recurring theme in both art and literature throughout history, often depicted as the Grim Reaper. Pratchett acknowledges humanity's enduring fascination with this persona, suggesting that his incorporation of Death in his novels was nothing groundbreaking but rather building upon a longstanding motif in human creativity.
I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races,that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.
