One of the drawbacks (if you can even call it that) of marriage is that I have yet to watch the Game of Thrones season premier for this season. Why? Because Josh has been working incredibly late every night this week.
This means, that I’ve had to tiptoe carefully around the Internet making sure I don’t run into any spoilers. I hate spoiling things for myself.
Even though I can’t watch the show yet, I still want to celebrate Game of Thrones season, since it’s my favorite TV show right now.
In honor of Game of Thrones season 5, here are some of the quotes that I think are the best Game of Thrones quotes from A Song of Ice and Fire. All quotes are taken from the books, rather than the show.
10 of the Best Game of Thrones Quotes

“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, the man who never reads lives one.”
“When you play the game of thrones you either win or you die, there is no middle ground.”
“There are no true knights, no more than there are gods. If you can’t protect yourself, die and get out of the way of those who can. Sharp steel and strong arms rule this world, don’t ever believe any different.”
– Sandor Clegane
“Summer friends will melt away like summer snows, but winter friends are friends forever.”
“Sleep is good and books are better.”
“There is only one god and his name is Death. And there is only one thing we say to Death: “Not today.”
“A coin is as dangerous as a sword in the wrong hands.”
“Fear cuts deeper than swords.”
“Words are like arrows, once loosened you cannot call them back.”
– Doran Martell
