Tyrion Lannister Quote: Books

I love the books in the “Game of Thrones” series by George R.R. Martin. They are full of intrigue, grandeur, lust, suffering, magic, dragons and wonderful quotatons. Here is one of my favorites, spoken by the popular character Tyrion Lannister.

Tyrion is explaining to Jon Snow why he reads so much.

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.” (George R.R. Martin, “A Game of Thrones”)

I love this quote so much that I made it into a graphic for easy sharing. Enjoy, and keep on reading!
