George R.R. Martin on Books…

I’ve currently been engrossed in The Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin. Here are a few quotes I’ve picked up along the way from Martin:

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

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies…The man who never reads lives only one.”

“Sleep is good…and books are better.”

“It is one thing to be clever and another to be wise.”
