Give me honorable enemies rather than ambitious ones, and I'll sleep more easily by night.
A good act does not wash out the bad, nor a bad act the good. Each should have its own reward.
I swear to you, sitting a throne is a thousand times harder than winning one.
I crossed a thousand leagues to come to you, and lost the best part of me along the way. Don't tell me to leave.
Kill the boy, Jon Snow. Winter is almost upon us. Kill the boy and let the man be born.
A man might befriend a wolf, even break a wolf, but no man could truly tame a wolf.
Crowns do queer things to the heads beneath them.
"If you need help bark like a dog." - Gendry. "That's stupid. If I need help I'll shout help." - Arya
