The fifth elephant, Terry Pratchett

A marriage is always made up of two people who are prepared to swear that only the other one snores.

You can find your average, amateur killers on every street. They're mostly deranged or drunk or some poor woman who's had a hard day and the husband has raised his hand once too often and suddenly twenty years of frustration takes over. Killing a stranger without malice or satisfaction, other than the craftsman's pride in a job well done, is such a rare talent that armies spend months trying to instil it into their young soldiers. Most people will shy away from killing people they haven't been introduced to.

The news that they have nothing to fear is guaranteed to strike terror into the hearts of innocents everywhere.

When heavy weights were balanced on the scales, the trick was to know where to place your thumb.
