He drew the dagger and laid it on the table between them; a length of dragonbone and Valyrian steel, as sharp as the difference between right and wrong, between true and false, between life and death.
She had put despair and fear aside, as if they were garments she did not choose to wear.
And the mystery knight should defeat all challengers and name the wolf maid the queen of love and beauty.
When you know what a man wants you know who he is, and how to move him.
We all dream of things we cannot have.
If I took it away, no doubt I'd find a morningstar hidden under your pillow within a fortnight. Try not to stab your sister, whatever the provocation.
The years leech at a man's memories, even those he has vowed never to forget.
If ice can burn, then love and hate can mate.
All that Syrio Forel had taught her went racing through her head. Swift as a deer. Quiet as shadow. Fear cuts deeper than swords. Quick as a snake. Calm as still water. Fear cuts deeper than swords. Strong as a bear. Fierce as a wolverine. Fear cuts deeper than swords. Then man who fears losing has already lost.
My brother has his sword, King Robert has his warhammer and I have my mind...and a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone if it is to keep its edge. That's why I read so much Jon Snow. - Tyrion Lannister
You are an honest and honorable man...Ofttimes I forget that. I have met so few of them in my life.
She just laughed in his face and told him she'd sooner crawl in a bed with his father's leeches before she'd crawl in one with him. She stopped laughing when he put his knife in her.
He wants you to smile and smell sweet and be his lady love. He wants to hear you recite all your pretty little words the way the septa taught you. He wants you to love him... and fear him.
She remembered the godswood, drooping branches heavy with moisture, and the sound of her brother's laughter as he chased her through piles of damp leaves.
Any act can be a prayer, if done as well as we are able.
You were made to be kissed, often and well.
A bruise is a lesson...and each lesson makes us better.
If I wanted to honor you, I´d let you retire. I am planing to make you run the kingdom and fight the wars while I eat and drink
There are things to be learned even from the dead.
It was that white cloak that soiled me, not the other way around.
And I have a tender spot in my heart for cripples and bastards and broken things.
My mind is my weapon. My brother has his sword, King Robert has his warhammer, and I have my mind and a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.
You do not steal from the dragon, oh, no. The dragon remembers.
Soon comes the cold, and the night that never ends.
Her lord father had taught her never to steal, but it was growing harder to remember why.
She should be on a hill somewhere, under a fruit tree, with the sun and clouds above her and the rain to wash her clean.
Can I dwell on what I scarce remember? I held a castle on the Marches once, and there was a woman I was pledged to marry, but I could not find that castle today, nor tell you the color of that woman's hair. Who knighted me, old friend? What were my favorite foods? It all fades. Sometimes I think I was born on the bloody grass in that grove of ash, with the taste of fire in my mouth and a hole in my chest. Are you my mother, Thoros?
