“If you don't turn your life into a story, you just become a part of someone else's story.”
The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents
“Do you not know that a man is not dead while his name is still spoken?”
“God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players [i.e. everybody], to being involved in an obscure and complex variant of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.”
Good Omens (co-written with Neil Gaiman)
Rest in peace, you ineffable man.
