Winter Is Here

After a long wait from fans over the world the much anticipated season 7 of Game of thrones has aired yesterday. If we look at the story line of this show it is struggle and politics between houses of seven kingdoms of ‘Westeros‘ for power , to conquer the Iron throne.

If we try to look into the reasons for the huge success of this shows we realize that the story line with all its twist and turns,the characters and dialogues touch the viewers heart somewhere and right from the first episode the person gets so involved in it, that you just cannot stop thinking about what happens next…..Sometime back I had read it somewhere , that when it comes to game of thrones there are only two types of people “Those who love it” or “Those who haven’t watched it“………

So for all Game of thrones lovers across the world sharing below some of my favorite dialogues which in a way I feel apply to our lives also

People work together when it suits them. They’re loyal when it suits them. They love each other when it suits them, and they kill each other when it suits them.”

Money buys man’s silence for time  A bolt in heart forever”

What is honor compared to a woman’s love? What is duty against the feel of a newborn son in your arms . . . or the memory of a brother’s smile? Wind and words. Wind and words. We are only human, and the gods have fashioned us for love. That is our great glory, and our great tragedy.”

The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword. If you would take a man’s life, you owe it to him to look into his eyes and hear his final words. And if you cannot bear to do that, then perhaps the man does not deserve to die.”

When you tear out a man’s tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you’re only telling the world that you fear what he might say.”

“Bran thought about it. ‘Can a man still be brave if he’s afraid?’ ‘That is the only time a man can be brave,’ his father told him.”

Why is it that when one man builds a wall, the next man immediately needs to know what’s on the other side?”

“Power resides where men believe it resides. No more and no less.” “A shadow on the wall,” Varys murmured, “yet shadows can kill. And ofttimes a very small man can cast a very large shadow.”

Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some, are given a chance to climb. They refuse, they cling to the realm or the gods or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.”

And last but not least my most favorite one

Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.”

“Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.”

Warren Bennis

Women Quotes

As we are approaching Women’s day sharing a bunch of quotes for all my readers

“A woman is like a tea bag – you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.”– Eleanor Roosevelt

“In politics, if you want anything said, ask a man; if you want anything done, ask a woman. “— Margaret Thatcher

“I just love bossy women. I could be around them all day. To me, bossy is not a pejorative term at all. It means somebody’s passionate and engaged and ambitious and doesn’t mind learning. “–Amy Poehler

“Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you’re wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn’t love you anymore. “— Lady Gaga

“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim. “-Nora Ephron

“I could not, at any age, be content to take my place by the fireside and simply look on. Life was meant to be lived. Curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.”Eleanor Roosevelt

“When looking for a life partner, my advice to women is date all of them: the bad boys, the cool boys, the commitment-phobic boys, the crazy boys. But do not marry them. The things that make the bad boys sexy do not make them good husbands. When it comes time to settle down, find someone who wants an equal partner. Someone who thinks women should be smart, opinionated and ambitious. Someone who values fairness and expects or, even better, wants to do his share in the home. These men exist and, trust me, over time, nothing is sexier. “— Sheryl Sandberg

“Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, “She doesn’t have what it takes.” They will say, “Women don’t have what it takes.”
Clare Boothe Luce

“The most powerful force in a woman’s life is the need to be appreciated, loved and cherished for what she is.” ― Amish Tripathi

“People think at the end of the day that a man is the only answer [to fulfillment]. Actually a job is better for me.”Princess Diana

The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.

How does one become a butterfly? You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.
Trina Paulus

The whole secret of a successful life is to find out what is one’s destiny to do, and then do it.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.
Mark Twain

Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life—think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.
Swami Vivekananda
