Sentranced Saturday

sentranced (adj.): the state of being captivated by a well-written sentence.

Sentranced Saturday is a weekly meme created Kaleena @Reader Voracious that encourages you to share a quote that left you entranced. It makes you think. She has a little notebook that she carries with her everywhere to write down quotes that inspire her in some way, and she is sure that she is not alone! Everyone is welcome to participate, please be sure to link to her post so she can see all of your quotes!

Sentranced Saturday

β€œNever forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”
~George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

Wear your armour proudly, honestly and wisely, as it is what will define you. It took me quite a few years to come into my own, and I think that is ok. Life is a continuing process of learning and growing. We are constantly evolving. I personally believe that true happiness and success lie in embracing who we are during each step of the journey. This falls back on my last Sentranced Saturday post, but I am holding steady to the belief that real strength comes from self-acceptance and love.

There is little I find more rewarding as a reader than books I am driven to quote. Discovering those small pieces of the written word that speak to us on a deeper level are the moments I live for in books. I can often judge the success of a title by how many tabs I have placed throughout it upon completion. And GRRM has cost me quite a few tabs, so for that reason, I remain a devoted fan in spite of Winds of Winter.. or the lack of πŸ˜‰

  1. I actually barely keep track of quotes! I have few highlights on my Kindle, and even if I highlight, I barely come back to read them. I guess I’m weird like that xD it’s really cool when people collect quotes or actually come back to them. I wonder why I’ve never been able to do that.

  2. Seeing that Baz is still reading the Dune books and we have been talking about them a lot, I’ll share this one… β€œI must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” ~ Frank Herbert, Dune. It helps with stagefright, but not with riding rollercoasters. Ha ha 🎒

    The book I just finished, Finding Gobi, had a sentiment that fits in with your quote. The author plays the Glad Game like I do, and he was saying that instead of crying about his rotten childhood he embraces it because he knows it is what made him resilient in his adult life. πŸ‘βœ¨
