“the frightened child […] died on the Dothraki Sea, and was reborn in blood and fire. this dragon queen who wears her name is a true Targaryen.”
Oh, to be sure, there is much we do not understand. The years pass in their hundreds and their thousands, and what does any man see of life but a few summers, a few winters? We look at mountains and call them eternal, and so they seem… but in the course of time, mountains rise and fall, rivers change their courses, stars fall from the sky, and great cities sink beneath the sea. Even gods die, we think. Everything changes.
- Maester Luwin, A Clash of Kings
Gods be good, why would any man ever want to be king? When everyone was shouting King in the North, King in the North, I told myself… swore to myself… That I would be a good king, as honorable as Father, strong, just, loyal to my friends and brave when I faced my enemies … now I can’t even tell one from the other.

If he must perish, let it be with a sword in his hand, fighting his father’s killers. He was no true Stark, had never been one.. but he could die like one. Let them say that Eddard Stark had fathered four sons, not three.”
