Ten Quotes From The One And Only Tyrion Lannister

Tyrion Lannister

Few characters in fiction deliver insults, advice, and witticisms like Tyrion Lannister. The Imp of Casterly Rock was almost forced into his intellect because of his stature. In my opinion he’s the most likable Lannister in Westeros; I certainly wouldn’t mind having dinner with him and asking his opinions on matters of the kingdom.

Check out my favorite quotes of his after the break (from the television series and books through A Storm of Swords – no spoilers).

“I have a tender spot in my heart for cripples, bastards and broken things.”

=======

“Those are brave men knocking at our door. Let’s go kill them!”

=======

“My brother has his sword, King Robert has his warhammer and I have my mind…and a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone if it is to keep its edge.”

=======

“Though I would treasure your friendship, I’m mainly interested in your facility with murder. And if the day ever comes where you’re tempted to sell me out, remember this: I’ll beat it. I like living!”

=======

“Never forget who you are, for surely the world won’t. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armor yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”

“Why is it that when one man builds a wall, the next man immediately needs to know what’s on the other side?”

=======

“I am not questioning your honor, I am denying its existence.”

=======

“I will hurt you for this. I don’t know how yet, but give me time. A day will come when you think yourself safe and happy, and suddenly your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth, and you’ll know the debt is paid.”

=======

“Your love your children, it is your one redeeming quality. That and your cheekbones.”

=======

“I believe that the only difference between us and the wildlings is that when that Wall went up, our ancestors happened to live on the right side of it.”

=======

And it’s not a quote but I do like to see him slap Joffrey repeatedly:
