Here’s a few quotes from to help you get through your hopefully sunny day.

Quote of the Day: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

Quote of the Day: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms
I was a little dissapointed with the quotes from A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms. Usually A Song of Ice and Fire has some really good quotes, but these are just sort of good. Still kinda cool if you try and think of some of the deeper meanings to them.
“The snail may leave a trail of slime behind him, but a little slime will do a man no harm, while if you dance with dragons, you must expect to burn.”
George R.R. Martin, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms
“A great battle is a terrible thing,” the old knight said, “but in the midst of blood and carnage, there is sometimes also beauty, beauty that could break your heart.”

“all men are fools, and all men are knights, where women are concerned.”

Quote of the Day: One Piece

Quote of the Day: One Piece

I always chuckle a little bit when I see this quote. It perfectly describes Luffy’s character.

“I love heroes, but I don’t want to be one. Do you even know what a hero is!? For example, you have some meat. Pirates will feast on the meat, but the hero will distribute it among the people! I want to eat the meat!” – Monkey D. Luffy

Quote of the Day: Lord of Chaos

Quote of the Day: Lord of Chaos

Since I couldn’t decide which quote I liked better, today you get two quotes from lord of Chaos. Both are great in their own regards, but I think the second one is cooler because it comes from Mat and we all know he is the coolest person in the series.

“Often you don’t know whether a woman is friend, enemy or lover until it is too late. Sometimes, she is all three.”
Robert Jordan, Lord of Chaos
Here lies the second quote:
“One more dance along the razor’s edge finished. Almost dead yesterday, maybe dead tomorrow, but alive, gloriously alive, today.”
Robert Jordan, Lord of Chaos

This is probably one of the most well-known quotes from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, but it is still one of the best and definitely one of my favourites.

J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
