Game of Thrones

Tywin Lannister: A lion does not concern himself with the opinion of sheep.

Tywin Lannister: Any man who must say "I am the king" is no true king.

Robert Baratheon: I'm simply asking you to run my kingdom while I eat, drink, and whore myself into an early grave.

Oberyn Martell: When we met your sister, she promised she would show you to us. Every day we would ask. Every day she would say, "Soon." Then she and your brother took us to your nursery and... she unveiled the freak. Your head was a bit large. Your arms and legs were a bit small, but no claw. No red eye. No tail between your legs. Just a tiny pink cock. We didn't try to hide our disappointment. "That's not a monster," I told Cersei, "that's just a baby." And she said, "He killed my mother." And she pinched your little cock so hard, I thought she might pull it off. Until your brother made her stop. "It doesn't matter," she told us. "Everyone says he will die soon, I hope they are right; he should not have lived this long."

Tyrion Lannister: [tears welling] Well... sooner or later, Cersei always gets what she wants.

Oberyn Martell: And what about what I want? Justice for my sister and her children.

Tyrion Lannister: If you want justice, you've come to the wrong place.

Oberyn Martell: I disagree. I've come to the perfect place. I want to bring those who have wronged me to justice, and all those who have wronged me are right here. I will begin with Ser Gregor Clegane, who killed my sister's children and then raped her with their blood still on his hands before killing her, too. I will be your champion.

Jaime Lannister: [about Ned Stark] By what right does the wolf judge the lion? By what right?

Stannis Baratheon: We march to victory, or we march to defeat. But we go forward. Only forward.

Tyrion Lannister: We've had vicious kings and we've had idiot kings, but I don't know if we've ever been cursed with a vicious idiot for a king!

Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish: The realm. Do you know what the realm is? It's the thousand blades of Aegon's enemies. A story we agree to tell each other over and over until we forget that it's a lie.

Lord Varys: But what do we have left once we abandon the lie? Chaos? A gaping pit waiting to swallow us all.

Petyr 'Littlefinger' 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; they refuse. They cling to the realm or the gods or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.

Cersei Lannister: When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground.

Lord Varys: Any fool with a bit of luck can find himself born into power. But earning it for yourself, that takes work.
