Attacking a man you cannot defeat comes from pride, not honor. Pride is often the opposite of honor.[to Eli]
You sit upon the highest seat in the realm, Your Grace. Proud men don’t like having to look up.[to Viserys]
What you have to understand about my people is that they are a noble people. Humility is their form of pride. It is their strength. It is their weakness. And if you can humble yourself before them, they will do anything you ask.
Pride. What does that word mean in the face of so much death? Pride is a construct, something we summon to unite us when we feel tired and weak. Pride takes work, but death comes easily.
