The man(Ned Stark) was a traitor, he tried to buy my loyalty!
The fool…he had no idea you were already bought!
Are you drunk?! I’ll not have my honour questioned by an imp!
I’m not questioning your honour, Lord Janos…I’m denying its existence!
The foolish ones go with women on the sly. The wise ones long ago understood the degree to which sex, as a source of pleasure, has overvalued in our society.
The more people you love, the weaker you are. You’ll do things for them that you know you shouldn’t do. You’ll act the fool to make them happy, to keep them safe. Love no one but your children. On that front, a other has no choice.
Any fool with a bit of luck can find himself born into power. But earning it for yourself, that takes work.
Sometimes family is more than just the people under your roof. They’re people who jump in, head first, who aren’t afraid to make fools of themselves to help you, who don’t hide their faces in shame if you fall down.
You are a thief. A foolish, incompetent thief. But we will treat your foolishness as some species of loyalty.
