In one of the Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett he wrote something along the lines of:

Faith cannot move mountains but can create someone who can

I think it is from "Reaper Man" but I can't verify it. Can you tell in which book this sentence appears, and what is the exact quote of it?

1 Answer 1


The quote is indeed from Reaper Man, but concerns belief rather than faith. The exact quote is:

Belief is one of the most powerful organic forces in the multiverse. It may not be able to move mountains, exactly. But it can create someone who can.
