ever so happy, just like in the songs

“We’ll be ever so happy, just like in the songs, you’ll see. I’ll give him a son with golden hair, and one day he’ll be the king of all the realm, the greatest king that ever was, as brave as the wolf and as proud as the lion.”

“(…) What would you give us for your lives, Tyrion son of Tywin? Swords? Lances? Mail?”

Different metals are each a different kind of learning

“(…) A maester forges his chain with study, he told me. The different metals are each a different kind of learning, gold for the study of money and accounts, silver for healing, iron for warcraft. (…) “The Night’s Watch needs all sorts too. (..) Why shouldn’t  Sam be a steward?”

Not this little man

“Can I make the little man fly now?”

Across the garden, Tyrion Lannister got to his feet. “Not this little man,” he said.

As blue as the eyes of death

As they came together in a rush of steel and shadow, he could hear Lyanna screaming. “Eddard!” she called. A storm of rose petals blew across a blood-streaked sky, as blue as the eyes of death.
