l will hurt you for this. A day will come when you think you’re safe and happy, and your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth. And you will know the debt is paid.
If the day ever comes when you’re tempted to sell me out, remember this, whatever their price, I’ll beat it. I like living.
What unites people? Armies? Gold? Flags? Stories. There’s nothing in the world more powerful than a good story. Nothing can stop it. No enemy can defeat it.
There have always been those with wealth and power and those with nothing. That is the way of the world.
I know you don’t care about your people. Why should you? They hate you and you hate them. But you’re not a monster. I know this. I know this because I’ve seen it. You’ve always loved your children. More than yourself, more than Jaime, more than anything. I beg you. If not for yourself, then for your child. Your reign is over, but that doesn’t mean your life has to end. It doesn’t mean your baby has to die.[to Cersei]
