I love this quote from George R.R. Martin, author of A Song of Ice and Fire, otherwise know as the Game of Thrones books.
I’ve known people who don’t read. It boggles my mind, really. Because, like this quote points out, that means they only get the one life they’re currently living.
Not that I hate my life, I’m a very lucky girl. But I can’t imagine being so incurious that I could be satisfied without ‘trying on’ other lives, other situations and emotions.
I think that’s why I write as well. The world is full of infinite possibilities. How can you not explore them?
Of course, I should also mention that we’re mere hours away from the Season 5 premiere of Game of Thrones.
And there was great joy throughout the kingdom…
