One of the most beautiful moments and speeches of the Discworld. Thank you Terry Pratchett.
Aside from the fact that Terry Pratchett is my fave writer of all time this is one of the best articulations of this view I have ever read. (for those interested this is Death talking to his granddaughter Susan)
"This is the Death whose particular sphere of operations is, well, not a sphere at all, but the Discworld, which is flat and rides on the back of four giant elephants who stand on the shell of the enormous star turtle Great A'Tuin, and which is bounded by a waterfall that cascades endlessly into space."
