What does Rincewind think right after that one time he casts a spell?

QuotationFilter: Rincewind the Wizzard cast a spell that one time (when he was in peril and the eighth spell needed to work through him to fry the cause of the peril with octarine fire) and then Rincewind thought something to the effect that he now understood why most wizards were single and pale (because doing magic was really satisfying and more fun than a normal life, apparently). I can't remember the exact wording, or find it in the books-- do you know? (I want to know because I might feel the same way about engineering.)

I forgot the Title of this Fantasy Novel.

I read a book about a young, girl wizard over 10 years ago and can't remember the name. It starts off with an old wizard who walks into a town where the 10th son of the 10th son of the 10th son was just born, and he transfers upon the baby all of his wizarding power. But the baby isn't a son, it's actually a daughter and this sets the scene for the rest of the book when the girl grows up to become the only female wizard, which rubs a lot of the wizarding community the wrong way.
