“It is a lesson,” Armen said, “the last lesson we must learn before we don our maester’s chains. [...] Wise men may grow arrogant in their wisdom, but a maester must always remain humble. [...] Even after he has said his vow and donned his chain and gone forth to serve.”
-A Song of Ice and Fire, Volume IV: A Feast for Crows
