I have three quotes that I'm pretty sure Pterry wrote, but I can't remember which books. (Och, waily!) :( Can you help? :)

- “Never cross a woman with a star on a stick, young lady. They've got a mean streak.”

- "A good plan isn't where someone wins, it's where nobody thinks they've lost"

- "It's the foldin' o' the arms! And the tappin' o' the feets!"

Thanks :)

Not sure of the third one - although it definitely has Feegles. The first one is from Wee Free Men and the second from The Amazing Maurice.

Thanks, Tony! I haven't read Amazing Maurice in years. I'll put it on my "to re-read" list. :)

Yes, the third one is definitely Feegles! :mrgreen: And I think I just found it - here it is:

==============
She folded her arms and then shouted, "Right you thieving scunners! How dare you steal Miss Treason's funeral meats!"

"Oh, waily, waily, it's the foldin' o' the arms, the foooldin' o' the aaaarmss!" cried Daft Wullie, dropping to the ground and trying to cover himself with leaves. Around him Feegles started to wail and cower and Big Yan began to bang his head on the rear wall of the dairy.
==============
(Wintersmith)

Och, crivens! :)
