Game of Thrones quotes collections, like this one on www.hoopoequotes.com, are great for fans. They put everything in one place. However, they lack context. Don't get me wrong, I love quotes collections like that one, I just like more when you put the quotes in the context. That is why I'll try to have a different take on the topic, and focus just on several quotes I like the most.It is not only about saying, it is as much up to the circumstances in which the sentences were said, to make us remember the moment.
These are the lines that define the world of Westeros and beyond. Today I am counting down my picks for the top quotes from Game of Thrones.
- When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die.
For this list we're taking a look at dialogues that has stood out in this ongoing dark fantasy series. These quotes can come from any character in any scenario as long as they leave an impact on fans and in some cases on the show itself.
And here's a warning a huge spoiler alert is in effect!
There is no love lost between these two Lannister siblings as Cersei tries to undermine her brother. She believes that she has finally gained victory when she reveals that she has captured his mistress
- Why are you happy?
- Because I have your little whore.
As it turns out she's captured the wrong girl. Her prisoner is actually one of Tyrians old conquests. Being the tactical genius he is, one of the best there is in the Seven Kingdoms (check out these quotes from Seven GoT Kingdoms), Tyrion plays the part of the defeated foe very well, feigning grief and delivering a rebuttal that may be made of false anger, but still sends chills down our spines:
- I will hurt you for this. The 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.
While his vengeful speech at his own trial is equally impressive:
- I wish I had enough poison for the whole pack of you. I would gladly give my life to watch you all swallow it.
I chose to go with the more subdued performance which displays just how well Tyrion understands and plays the tactical game.
The god of death.
- Who are you?
- Your dancing master Syrio Forel.
Though he wasn't long for this world, Syrio Forel was an exceptionally entertaining standalone character. First introduced as young Arya Stark’s dancing master, we quickly learned that in Braavos dancing master means master swordsman.
- Nine years Syrio Forel was First sword to the Sealord of Braavos. He knows these things, you must listen to me boy.
- I'm a girl.
During one of his classes he offers Arya a piece of advice that inspires one of her defining characteristics. He believes in neither the old gods nor the new, only in the absolute god known as Death. And he only has one thing to say to death:
- There is only one God and His name is Death. And there is only one thing we say to death. Not today
While this quote was inspiring the first time we heard it, it was utterly heartbreaking when it became his dying words following his supposed defeat by a Lannister guardsman. Seems the death insisted today be the day.
- What do we say to the god of death?
- Not today.
