This wasn’t a political marriage, nor a magical one, it was simply an example of human nature. […] Sometimes the marriages of convenience in the Seven Kingdoms come out well and those that are for love don’t. Sometimes a couple loves one another, and then at some point they don’t. There are marriages that also develop out of nothing more than lust. There’s no guarantee that things will go well and the consequence of this is that disappointments develop and you end up estranged, each person going their own way. There’s some bitterness from Mellario about this, because as Prince of Dorne, Doran has been able to stay with his children and she has had to leave them. → George R. R. Martin


We have rested long enough. Frost to fire and fire to frost. Iron will melt. But it will writhe inside of itself! All these years, all I’ve known is darkness. But I have never seen a brighter light than when my eyes just opened. And I know that light burns in all of you! Those embers must turn to flame. Iron into sword. I will become your weapon! Forged by the fierce fire that I know is in your hearts! For I have seen what she sees. I know what she knows. I can kill her. And I’d rather die today than live another day of this death! Who will ride with me? Who will be my brother?
