When George RR Martin began writing a book series called A Song of Ice and Fire nearly 20 years ago, he had no idea it would be adapted into one of the most popular TV series ever made. When you read and watch this incredible contents, all the battles, the characters and the complex storylines, you can't help but wonder where he found his inspiration. There is real chance that of some of Game of Thrones characters may be loosely based around real-life historical figures. And although George RR Martin doesn't say much on the subject, and has never confirmed these fan made links, it's not hard to find similarities between the two.
As we witnessed in the article on HoopoeQuotes (click here) there are also many other characters that we cannot link to any historical personality. I thought to combine the two and make an article on my favorite characters, but on the same time on Game of Thrones quotes. So, here are my favorite characters with some of their best quotes from the show.
Sandor the Hound Clegane
An absolute jerk and proud of it, there is no task too dark for the man known as the Hound. At least that's what he'd like you to believe. In truth, he possesses a moral code of his own and the deeds of the people he spent years protecting push him to abandon his position and the comfort it affords him for the uncertainty of the world outside the gates.
Though we're fascinated by his backstory and how he earned his grizzly facial scars, it's ultimately the awesome ways this adept warrior dispatches those foolish enough to cross him that earns him our love and respect.
My favorite quotes by The Hound:
- Sansa Stark: "Does it give you joy to scare people?"
- Sandor Clegane: "No, it gives me joy to kill people."
"Hate is good as any to keep a person going, better than most."
- "When you play the game of Thrones you win you die. there is no middle ground."
Hated by many, feared by all, Cersei is the epitome of the mother bear. If you make the mistake of endangering her children she will exorcise her palpable wrath and ensure you live to regret it. Equally defined by her love-hate relationship with her brothers Cersei loves Jaime and hates Tyrion which lies behind much of the strife that befall her family. A woman who holds an incredible position of power which she was given due to her last name and which he has kept due to force of will. We love to hate her in every sense.
- "Power is power."
If you liked these so far, you can also check an article on Books of Game of Thrones blog. It also has some interesting quotations from the Game of Thrones TV Show.
The ultimate villain and a product of Cersei and Jaime's incestuous relationship Joffrey's a spoiled vicious brat who finds entertainment and glee in the suffering of others.
He's particularly partial to choosing a victim and repeatedly exposing him or her to every horrific whim that crosses his mind. Actually we can't think of a single character that has been more universally despised than the half-pint Prince but that's what makes him great.
The fact that he can simply walk into a room and cause stomachs to turn enrage and disgust means he's definitely on to something. This little psychopath is another character we just love to hate.
- "This one's your father. This one here, look at it and see what happens to traitors."
- "Night gathers and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death."
His personal history may be under debate, but we can confirm that Jon Snow is one of Game of Thrones most popular characters. Known as the bastard son of arguably the most honorable man ever to appear on the show, Jon is the character that makes us care about the Nights Watch.The target of envy and disgust from some of the elders of his order, he's undoubtedly the future of the Brotherhood.
- "I talk like a wildling, I ate with the wildlings, I climb the wall with the wildlings, I laid with a wildling girl."
Assuming he can drag them kicking and screaming from the grip of certain death, it's this loyalty that forces him to walk away from Ygritte, the woman he loves and, more importantly, the woman who loves him.
So, there's my Game of Thrones Quotes list. Let me know what you think.
