A Clash of Kings

“A good act does not wash out the bad, nor a bad act the good. Each should have its own reward.”

“If the fire was too hot, you could hardly keep the pudding from scorching by tossing a handful of raisins in the pot.”

“Only a fool humbles himself when the world is so full of men eager to do that job for him.”

“When we speak of the morrow nothing is ever certain.”
(Ser Rodrik)

“This world is twisted beyond hope, when lowborn smugglers must vouch for the honor of kings.”

“He who hurries through life hurries to his grave.”
(Salladhor Saan)

“People often claim to hunger for truth, but seldom like the taste when it’s served up.”

“Perhaps that is the secret. It is not what we do, so much as why we do it.”

“The dead are likely dull fellows, full of tedious complaints—the ground’s too cold, my gravestone should be larger, why does he get more worms than I do . . .”
(Dolorous Edd)
