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!
“Never 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,
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 😉
