Balon Greyjoy: We do not sow. We are ironborn. We’re not subjects. We’re not slaves. We do not plow the fields or toil in the mine. We take what is ours. Your time with the wolves has made you weak. Theon Greyjoy: You act as if l volunteered to go. You gave me away, if you remember. The day you bent the knee to Robert Baratheon. After he crushed you. Did you take what was yours then?

This is so relevant.. the entire Sex and the City series. The overall issues that these women go through are so relatable. Although they are dramatized a bit.. the overall message they convey is so relevant it blows my mind.

I’ve freaked out like this and asked myself so many times why i keep going back to him and putting myself through the pain all the time. But like Carrie says in another episode, “Did I ever really love Big? Or was I just addicted to the pain? The exquisite pain of wanting someone so unattainable.”
Today in Book News: Just months after Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s passing, the works of the late Colombian writer have found their resting place. The University of Texas, Austin has announced that the Harry Ransom Center, the school’s humanities research library, has acquired the Nobel winner’s archive.
The newly won trove is anything but insubstantial. Among the documents going to the library, original manuscripts of such classics as One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera stand paired with more curious remnants of Garcia Marquez’s writing life, like his Smith Corona typewriters and more than 40 photo albums. Rounding out the archive are his drafts, annotations, unpublished works and some 2,000 letters to other literary luminaries like Milan Kundera and Graham Greene.
Also today, Lawrence Wright’s Going Clear, which scrutinizes the Church of Scientology and its sway in Hollywood, will soon be framed and featured on the small screen, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The publication reports HBO is planning to air a documentary in 2015 based on the National Book Award nominee, and that the network has picked up Oscar winner Alex Gibney to direct it.
And Aretha Franklin doesn’t care for David Ritz’s new unauthorized biography of her, to put the matter lightly. Franklin, who’s worked with Ritz on a previous biography and the album notes to a 1992 box set, took issue with the manner in which Ritz delves into Franklin’s private family life in Respect: The Life of Aretha Franklin.
"As many of you are aware, there is a very trashy book out there full of lies and more lies about me. Clearly the writer has no class, no conscience or standards!" Franklin said in a statement.
