Writer Terry Pratchett is best known for his 41-book “Discworld” fantasy series, which is based around the idea of a disc-shaped world that rests on the backs of four elephants, all standing atop an enormous turtle. His other work shows similar whimsy, from his 1971 novel about a fantastical world within a carpet (“The Carpet People”) to his 1991 collaboration with author Neil Gaiman about angels and demons (“Good Omens”). Pratchett’s creative prowess earned him numerous awards and accolades, including a British knighthood in 2009. With this advice, he encourages us to give more attention to the unique vision each of us offers, because the ability to see beyond what is in front of us is the very essence of humanity.
