Quote of the Day: Winter’s Heart by Robert Jordan

“A man who trusts everyone is a fool and a man who trusts no one is a fool. We are all fools if we live long enough.” 
― Robert Jordan, Winter’s Heart

“You can never know everything, and part of what you know is always wrong. Perhaps even the most important part. A portion of wisdom lies in knowing that. A portion of courage lies in going on anyway.” 
― Robert Jordan, Winter’s Heart

“Your body is only clothing. Your flesh will wither, but you are your heart and mind, and they do not change except to grow stronger.” 
― Robert Jordan, Winter’s Heart

“Great captains earned their reputation not just for laying brilliant plans, but for still being able to find victory after those plans began to fall apart.” 
― Robert Jordan, Winter’s Heart

“There was nothing a woman would not tell you if you kissed her enough.” 
― Robert Jordan, Winter’s Heart

“It was a simple truth; the Creator made women so men would not find life too easy.” 
― Robert Jordan, Winter’s Heart

“Women lied to get a man into bed, and they lied worse once they had him there.” 
― Robert Jordan, Winter’s Heart

“Light, women would believe anything about a man so long as it was bad. And the worse it was, the more they had to talk about it.” 
― Robert Jordan, Winter’s Heart

“Stories have power. Gleemen’s tales, and bards’ epics, and rumors in the street alike. They stir passions, and change the way men see the world.” 
― Robert Jordan, Winter’s Heart

Wheel of Time Wednesdays: Casting Announcement

Deadline.com announced that Amazon Studios confirmed the roles of Alanna Mosvani and two of her warders, Ihvon and Maksim, have been cast for the upcoming Wheel of Time TV show

Alanna Mosvani will be played by Priyanka Bose. 

Maksim will be played by Taylor Napier. 

Ihvon will be played by Emmanuel Imani. 

Alanna is an Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah who has a significant, and sometimes controversial, role in the story. Interestingly, in the books, Alanna has two warders, Ihvon and Owein.  Of those warders, Owein has the lesser role and is only mentioned a few time before dying.  It seems he’s been replaced by a character named Maksim. It’s unknown if these are intended to be the same character, or if Maksim is a replacement for Owein with the intention of having a larger role.

What do you think of the casting announcement? Let’s talk about it in the comments.

Wheel of Time News

For the first Wednesday of every month, The Wheel of Time on Prime Twitter account gives fans an important announcement about the upcoming TV series.

This week we are blessed with another casting announcement for Tam Al’Thor, father of Rand Al’Thor, and downright bad ass in his own right.

Michael McElhatton will be taking up the role, and you may know him as Roose Bolton from Game of Thrones.

I’m excited to see what McElhatton will do with this role, but I do know he will do a hell of a job. He was terrific as Roose Bolton, and a good pick for Tam Al’Thor

Wheel of Time Wednesdays: Script Read Through.

A few weeks ago the cast of the upcoming Wheel of Time TV show did a read through of the script.
