The man was a traitor, he tried to buy my loyalty![Janos Slynt, about Ned Stark]The fool… he had no idea you were already bought![Tyrion Lannister]Are you drunk?! I’ll not have my honour questioned by an imp![Janos Slynt]I’m not questioning your honour, Lord Janos… I’m denying its existence![Tyrion Lannister]
The only way to keep the small folk loyal is to make certain they fear you more than they do the enemy.
Loyalty is an overrated virtue, championed by the bovine, dignified by the weak to justify their weakness.
It is not just about numbers and decimal points. The thing that makes it matter is lasting relationships, true loyalty, real trust.[to Taylor]
You hire people when they’re young, single, looking for something to commit to, to build their lives around. Pay them twice what they’re worth. It builds loyalty.[to Ward]
