“Do you remember when we last went on holiday, Sam?”
“That wasn’t really a holiday, dear,” said Vimes. Above them, Young Sam swung back and forth in a little hammock, cooing.
“Well, it was very interesting, all the same,” said Sybil.
“Yes, dear. Werewolves tried to eat me.”

Thud! - Terry Pratchett

“Sam Vimes once arrested me for treason,” said Vetinari calmly. “And Sam Vimes once arrested a dragon. Sam Vimes stopped a war between nations by arresting two high commands. He’s an arresting fellow, Sam Vimes. Sam Vimes killed a werewolf with his bare hands, and carries law with him, like a lamp—”
“Where did 
all that come from?”
“Watchmen across half the continent will say that Sam Vimes is as straight as an arrow, can’t be corrupted, won’t be turned, never took 
a bribe.”

Thud! - Terry Pratchett

"It was important that no one else was here. This moment in time was just for the Sams. Young Sam pulled himself up against the cot’s rails, and said “Da!”
The world went soft.”

Thud! - Terry Pratchett

"Vimes had never got on with any game much more complex than darts. Chess in particular had always annoyed him. It was the dumb way the pawns went off and slaughtered their fellow pawns while the kings lounged about doing nothing that always got to him; if only the pawns united, maybe talked the rooks around, the whole board could’ve been a republic in a dozen moves.”

Thud! - Terry Pratchett

“I can tell you anything you need to know,” said Vimes.
“Yes, Your Grace, but that is not how an inquiry works. I must act completely independently. Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Your Grace.”
“I know that one,” said Vimes. “Who watches the watchmen? Me, Mr. Pessimal.”

Thud! - Terry Pratchett

‘She’s not bad,’ said Nanny. ‘She does good work over in Fiddler’s Elbow. People speak highly of her.’
Granny sniffed. ‘Do they speak highly of me?’ she said.
‘No, they speaks quietly of you, Esme.’
