George R.R. Martin
"I am very smart. I went to the best medacad on Osiris. Top three percent of my class. Finished my internship in eight months. "Gifted" is the term. So when I tell you that my little sister makes me look like an idiot child, I want you to understand my full meaning. River was more than gifted. She… She was a gift. Everything she did, music, math, theoretical physics, even… even dance… there was nothing that didn’t come as naturally to her as breathing does to us."
When anything is blocking my head or there’s worry in my life, I just go sit on Mars or something and look back here at Earth. All you can see is this tiny speck. You don’t see the fear. You don’t see the pain. You don’t see thought. It’s just one solid speck. Then nothing really matters. It just doesn’t.- Heath Ledger (April 4th, 1979- January 22nd, 2008)
