Quote of the Day – February 24, 2012 – A Mind’s Whetstone

“I have a realistic grasp of my own strengths and weaknesses. My mind is my weapon. My brother has his sword, King Robert has his warhammer, and I have my mind… and a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge. That’s why I read so much, Jon Snow.”
-Tyrion Lannister in A Game of Thrones by George R R Martin
