Game of Thrones: Chaos Is a Ladder.

Master of Chaos. Lord Petyr Baelish aka Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen).

Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, buy they refuse. They cling to the realm or the gods or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.
