There’s more to this show than nudity and violence, though those parts are awesome too. Inspired by the article I’ve read recently, I’ve decided to do a Game of Thrones quotes collection of my own.
For this list we’re looking at the best of the best quotes by Game of Thrones characters from the TV show. Because of this, we will not be considering characters from the books that have yet to appear on the show, as well as events that have not yet been translated to the small screen. We will, however, be discussing events that happen throughout the series, so if you’re not caught up consider this your spoiler alert.
Petyr Littlefinger Baelish
Perhaps the most devious and cunning men in Westeros, Littlefinger has his digits in every pocket and backroom dealing you could possibly imagine. In fact, he’s likely behind even more than we know.
Simultaneously the King’s greatest pimp and an aide and advisor to practically the entire ruling class, it’s fitting that he chose the Mockingbird as his symbol, because he has little birdies everywhere whispering the city secrets to him.
Weakened only by an undying love for Catelyn Stark and her daughter, this former master of coin is a formidable foe if you choose to cross him.
My favorite quote by Baelish is, of course: “Chaos is not a pit. Chaos is a ladder.”
Brienne of Tarth
It takes incredible skill and force of will for a woman to be taken seriously as a warrior in the world of Game of Thrones, and luckily for Brienne “The beauty”, as she is sarcastically called, she possesses those attributes in spades.
When she’s tasked with bringing Jaime Lannister to her leash Catelyn Stark, she couldn’t possibly comprehend the path down which this would send her life. Eventually developing a grudging respect for her would-be prisoner, she may not have been able to complete her task, but her loyalty caused her to try to see it through in spirit.
“Finally my father said: ‘If you’re going to do it, you might as well do it right’.”
What is your favorite house and character from Game of Thrones? Do you like quotes more, or are you more of a “noble house motto” type? Check out this GoT quote collection to make sure what ticks you more.
“The things I do for love.”
When we were first introduced to Jaime, we took him as a vain arrogant egomaniac with a perverse family dynamic. Well there’s something to first impression. What we didn’t realize, however, was how much charm The Kingslayer held and how much we’d fall in love with the man for his fair treatment of his brother Tyrion. A fierce warrior who never back away from a fight, Jaime seems only to be afraid of two things: his father and the legacy he hasn’t left behind.
One thing we’re afraid of is the prospect of George RR Martin taking this beloved Game of Thrones character away from us.
Best GoT quote I remember him for is:
Everyone has his own favorite Lannister. Jaime is mine 🙂
