„If only they'd think up a name like Some More True Human Beings, it'd save a lot of trouble later on.“

—  Terry Pratchett, kniha Kobercové

The Carpet People (1971; 1992)
Kontext: They called themselves the Munrungs. It meant The People, or The True Human Beings.
It's what most people call themselves, to begin with. And then one day the tribe meets some other People or, if it's not been a good day, The Enemy. If only they'd think up a name like Some More True Human Beings, it'd save a lot of trouble later on.

„Having the baby changed my life a lot.“

—  Cass Elliot American singer 1941 - 1974

Rolling Stone interview (1968)
Kontext: Having the baby changed my life a lot. I don't want to go on the road, you see. It's actually a matter of economics, much like the Vietnamese war, I guess. I didn't want to go on the road and I wanted to stay home with my baby. I guess I could go to Kansas and be a waitress and support my child that way. But I'd rather live comfortable and I wanted to do more creative work. I didn't just want to be part of a group. I wanted to be able to do television, and a movie if it came up, to sort of diversify myself, to extend myself. Within the framework of a group, that freedom is not possible.
