A Song Of Ice And Fire – My Favourite Lines

Obviooously we all know how much I love Game Of Thrones. The show and the book series – A Song Of Ice And Fire – have both provided me with some of my all time favourite quotes. Today in my countdown to season 7 I’m sharing with you some of the lines I love the most. My kindle highlights section is full page after page with lines that I’ve highlighted throughout the years of reading the books so it’s been really hard to whittle it down. Here are a few of those lines I have highlighted that have really made me think and reflect, or have simply been everything I’ve needed to read/hear at a particular moment in my life.

 

Cersei 

 “Sansa, permit me to share a bit of womanly wisdom with you on this very special day. Love is poison. A sweet poison, yes, but it will kill you all the same.”

Mully

“My grandmother used to say, summer friends will melt away like summer snows, but winter friends are friends forever”

Ygritte

You’re mine,” she whispered. “Mine, as I’m yours. And if we die, we die. All men must die, Jon Snow. But first, we’ll live.”

Petyr Baelish

“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, 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.”

Tyrion

“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it and it will never be used to hurt you.”

^^^^^ all time fave  quote ever ever ever ^^^^^

Tyrion

“A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.”

 Cersei 

 “A woman’s life is nine parts mess to one part magic, you’ll learn that soon enough…and the parts that look like magic often turn out to be messiest of all.”

Theon Greyjoy

 “Only a fool humbles himself when the world is s full of men eager to do that job for him.”

Arya

 “Fear cuts deeper than swords.”

Varys

“Here, then. Power resides where men believe It resides. No More and no less…so power is a mummers trick…A shadow on the wall…yet shadows can kill. And oftimes a very small man can cast a very large shadow”

Meera Reed

 “Remember Old Nan’s stories, Bran. Remember the way she told them, the sound of her voice. So long as you do that, part of her will always be alive in you.”

Old Nan

 “Old stories are like old friends, she used to say. You have to visit them from time to time.”

Jon

“All those he shared with Ygritte but not some of the others. We look up at the same stars, and see such different things.”

Tywin

“Any man who must say ‘I am the King’ is no true king at all.”

Doran Martell

 “Silence is a prince’s friend, words are like arrows Arianne. Once loosed, you cannot call them back.”

Maester Aemon

 “Knowledge is a weapon Jon. Arm yourself with it before you ride forth to battle.”

Rhaegar Targaryan

 “…It does no good to speak of roads not taken.”

Jaime

“How much can a crown be worth when a crow can dine upon a king?”

Rodrick The Reader

 “Archmaester Rigney once wrote that history is a wheel, for the nature of a man is fundamentally unchanging. What has happened before will perforce happen again.”

Lord Tarly

 “As for you my lady, it is said that your father is a good man. If so, I pity him. Some men are blessed with sons, some with daughters. o man deserves to be cursed with such as you. Live or die Lady Brienne, do not return to Maidenpool whilst I rile here.’  Words are wind Brienne told herself. They cannot hurt you. Let them wash over you. ‘As you command, my lord. She tried to say, but Tarly had long gone before she got it out. She walked from the yard like one asleep, not knowing where she was going.”

Jaime

” Jaimes golden  hand cracked him across the mouth so hard the other knight went stumbling down the steps. His lantern fell and smashed, and the oil spread out, burning. ‘You are speaking of a highborn lady, ser. Call her by her name. Call her Brienne.'”

Illyrio Mopatis

“But the world is one great web, and a man dare not touch a single strand lest all the others tremble.”

Daenerys

“Women do not forget, women do not forgive”

Sansa

“A long time ago she remembered her father saying that when the cold winds blow the lone wolf dies and the pack survives”
