A Game of Thrones

Highlights: “The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword. If you would take a man’s life, you owe it to him to look into his eyes and hear his final words. And if you cannot bear to do that, then perhaps the man does not deserve to die.”

“.. a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.”

“Bran thought about it. ‘Can a man still be brave if he’s afraid?’ That is the only time a man can be brave,’ his father told him.”

“What is honor compared to a woman’s love? What is duty against the feel of a newborn son in your arms . . . or the memory of a brother’s smile? Wind and words. Wind and words. We are only human, and the gods have fashioned us for love. That is our great glory, and our great tragedy.”
