Thursday Quotable: A Clash of Kings



Only a fool humbles himself when the world is so full of men eager to do that job for him

— A Clash of Kings, George R.R. Martin (Theon Greyjoy)

Oh, Theon, how the mighty have fallen… I’m on a reread of this book, and knowing what I know from the show and the books that I have read, this is an excellent foreshadowing of events to come, as well as an excellent summation of Theon’s character.

Thanks to J.W. Martin, and Bookshelf Fantasies for recommending this prompt.

  1. That is a great quote. And I can’t remember the last time I’ve read another character to have to crap kicked out of him so mercilessly and constantly as Theon Greyjoy. GRRM must be picturing that character as a childhood bully or something!
