"It is easy to confuse what is with what ought to be, especially when what is has worked out in your favor."
- Tyrion Lannister

"Lannister. Baratheon. Stark. Tyrell. They're all just spokes on a wheel. This one's on top, then that's ones on top and on and on it spins, crushing those on the ground. I'm not going to stop the wheel. I'm going to break the wheel."

- Daenerys Targaryen


"The Lord of Light wants his enemies burned. The Drowned God wants them drowned. Why are all the gods such vicious cunts? Where's the God of Tits and Wine?"

- Tyrion Lannister


"The common people pray for rain, healthy children, and a summer that never ends. It is no matter to them if the high lords play their game of thrones, so long as they are left in peace. They never are."

- Jorah Mormont


"These bad people are what I'm good at. Out talking them. Out thinking them."

- Tyrion Lannister


"What happened? I think fundamentals were trumped by mechanics and, to a lesser extent, by demographics."

- Michael Barone

"If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to."

The Youth are wise and right! You refused the call. Lady Mormont speaks harshly and truly.

The youth voted overwhelmingly for Bernie Sanders. They voted for Remain. After a pause in the discussion at the meeting of the victors over Ramsey Bolton, young Lady Mormont speaks up for Jon Snow:

"Your son was butchered at the Red Wedding, Lord Manderly, but you refused the call.

You swore allegiance to House Stark, Lord Glover, but in their hour of greatest need you refused the call.

And you, Lord Cerwyn, your father was skinned alive by Ramsey Bolton. Still, you refused the call.

But House Mormont remembers. The North remembers! We know no king but the King in the North whose name is Stark! I don't care if he's a bastard. Ned Stark's blood runs through his veins. He's my King from this day until his last day!"
