Wisdom #16: Keeping the Edge


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

– George R.R. Martin

If I remember correctly, Tyrion Lannister said this quote in the first novel in the A Song Of Ice and Fire series. Many great quotes came from Tyrion’s character in the novels, which ultimately means it came from Martin’s mind. I love that this quote can be interpreted and directed in so many different ways. I think overall that is what books and reading is so amazing – everyone takes something different from a novel.

Enjoy your Wednesday! :)
