Terry Pratchett 1948-2015

"There was a story under every roof, she knew. She knew all about stories. But those down there were the stories that were never to be told, the little secret stories, enacted in little rooms... And one of the things a witch did was stand right on the edge, where the decisions had to be made. You made them so that others didn't have to, so that others could even pretend to themselves that there were no decisions to be made, no little secrets, that things just happened." Carpe Jugulum 1998

We've lost a great teller of stories, but he made his own decision when he was standing on the edge.
