"Sometimes I think we're all just facing in the wrong direction and if we just turned around and faced each other we'd all find exactly what we're looking for."
Doc in 4 a.m. - Open All Night
"I think of myself as the scrawl which an unknown power scribbles across a sheet of paper, to try out a new pen."
"We read fantasy to find the colours again, I think. To taste strong spices, and hear the songs the sirens sang. There is something old and true in fantasy that speaks to something deep within us, to the child who dreamed that one day he would hunt the forests of the night, and feast beneath the hollow hills, and find a love to last forever somewhere south of Oz and north of Shangri-La. They can keep their heaven. When I die, I'd sooner go to Middle-Earth."
George R.R. Martin
