“It would be a pretty good bet that the gods of a world like this [Discworld] probably do not play chess and indeed this is the case. In fact no gods anywhere play chess. They haven’t got the imagination. Gods prefer simple, vicious games, where you Do Not Achieve Transcendence but Go Straight To Oblivion; a key to the understanding of all religion is that a god’s idea of amusement is Snakes Latters with greased rungs.” Wyrd Sisters
This quote made me chuckle for a while... then I stopped and nodded.
