I'm rereading Feet of Clay and realized for the first time that not only dwarves use translations of their actual names when in Ankh-Morpork, but Cheery Littlebottom's actual name in Dwarvish is Sh’rt’azs.
His philosophy was a mixture of three famous schools -- the Cynics, the Stoics and the Epicureans -- and summed up all three of them in his famous phrase, 'You can't trust any bugger further than you can throw him, and there's nothing you can do about it, so let's have a drink."

WOW. I need to re-read. I think I should just buy all the Pratchetts on Kindle and resolve this problem for me.
