Bear Island knows no king but the King in the North, whose name is STARK.
Lyanna Mormont, A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin (via quotesfromwesteros)
And the wolf? Wolves run strongly through the forests of the mind. Humans heard the howling in the dark, an urgent music, a gleeful reciprocal chorus; the loping, padding, tireless runners are both out of sight and inside the head. There, too, are the bristling coat, the snout, the teeth, the blood. Firelight, and the light of the full moon, are reflected in inhuman eyes, glittering in the dark, specks of brightness in deep shadows.
A. S. Byatt, from Ragnarök
