Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder.
Many who try to climb it fail. Never get to try again.
The fall breaks them.
And some are given a chance to climb, but they refuse.
They cling to the realm or the gods or love. Illusions.
Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.
-Petyr Baelish, Master of Coin, Game of Thrones
