Sourcery, a hilarious mix of magic, mayhem, and Luggage, is the fifth book in Terry Pratchett's classic fantasy Discworld series.
Rincewind, the legendarily inept wizard, has returned after falling off the edge of the world. And this time, he’s brought the Luggage. But that’s not all… Once upon a time, there was an eighth son of an eighth son who was, of course, a wizard. As if that wasn’t complicated enough, said wizard then had seven sons. And then he had an eighth son — a wizard squared (that’s all the math, really). Who of course, was a source of magic — a sourcerer.
Will the sourcerer lead the wizards to dominate all of Discworld? Or can Rincewind’s tiny band stave off the Apocalypse?

Quotes

    Макс Поляковhas quoted5 years ago
    The boy knelt down and peered closely at Carding.
    'He's very still,' he said cautiously. 'Is anything bad happening to him?'
    'It may be,' said Hakardly, guardedly. 'He's dead.'
    'I wish he wasn't.'
    'It is a view, I suspect, which he shares.'
    Tigran Paravyanhas quoted2 months ago
    There's thousands of them,' he whispered, his voice being sucked away and silenced by the massed ranks of books. 'How did you get them all in here?'
    Tigran Paravyanhas quoted5 months ago
    Except that wizards can never go home.
    This is one of the ancient and deeply meaningful sayings about wizards and it says something about most of them that they have never been able to work out what it means. Wizards aren't allowed to have wives but they are allowed to have parents, and many of them go back to the old home town for Hogswatch Night or Soul Cake Thursday, for a bit of a sing­song and the heart-warming sight of all their boyhood bullies hurriedly avoiding them in the street.
    It's rather like the other saying they've never been able to understand, which is that you can't cross the same river twice. Experiments with a long-legged wizard and a small river say you can cross the same river thirty, thirty-five times a minute.
