The phenomenon of “Game of Thrones” has come to an end. A series with dragons, white walkers, wars, and medieval politics has taught us innumerable things over its 8 seasons that we can imbibe in our daily lives. Here are the life lessons that this spectacular series has given.
Tyrion Lannister, the wisest character of them all says, “A mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone.”
