favorite quotes from a dance with dragons [1/4]

“Hearts are wild creatures, that’s why our ribs are cages.”

(via elalusz)


Ursula K. Le Guin, “Winged: the Creatures on my Mind”

“Second hand books are wild books, homeless books; they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack.”

Virginia Woolf (via chandr-a)

“The Stark boy is a child. No doubt he likes the sound of warhorns well enough, and the sight of his banners fluttering in the wind, but in the end it comes down to butcher’s work.”

Tywin Lannister (via joannalannister)

This is the thing that kills me about the Lannisters.  They don’t relish the violence.  They don’t relish any of it.  They don’t enjoy the power—they spend all their time worrying about losing it.  They don’t enjoy the wealth because they don’t understand what it’s like not to have it.  They don’t enjoy playing the game; they’re always terrified someone else is playing it better.  There’s a certain… grim satisfaction that they feel when they’re on top, but that’s not why they keep doing it.  It’s just… a compulsion.
