11 ‘Game Of Thrones’ Quotes That Sum Up Your Entire Life
Let's be real for a minute: Life is messy, complicated, and kinda beautiful, just like Game of Thrones. Yeah, I said it. When it comes to shows that are incredibly relatable, Game of Thrones has got your back. Take of the dragons, wildfire, willy-nilly murder, and White Walkers and what do you get? Just some very real, very similar life situations. Game of Thrones is about love, power, war, art, triumph, defeat, and everything in between. It specializes in portraying very real human emotions and dynamics within the fantasy genre.
Admit it: On some level, there's one character on the show that you love and relate to unconditionally. There are entire batches of characters you wish you could push out of the Tower of Joy. There are some characters that you just want to get totally drunk with and ride around on a dragon with. Right? Isn't that a little bit like the situations we face in real life?
Which leads me to wonder: if you were able to sum up your life in one Game of Thrones quote, what would it be? There are so many to choose from. So many different quotes are applicable to so many different situations in real life. Do you lead a neat and orderly life? Are you driven by chaos or love? Are you power-hungry? Are you just chilling, watching the world go by? To that end, here are some of the best Game of Thrones quotes that sum up your life, no matter how you choose to live it.
A classic Game of Thrones line and applicable to literally every situation in your life. If you're a jack-of-all trades, then this one fits you like a glove.
2. "When You Play The Game Of Thrones, You Win Or You Die."
Are you climbing the ladder to success on the regs? Are you just killin' the game on a daily basis? Then Cersei's iconic quote is right up your street.
3. "Winter Is Coming."
If there's drama around every corner or you feel like you're preparing for rough times, then this ominous Ned Stark quote may just be your motto.
4. "All Men Must Die. But We Are Not Men."
Alright, please don't actually kill any men. That said, Daenerys' supremely feminist statement is for all the women who are ready to reclaim what's rightfully theirs in a smart, expertly done way. This is for you, ladies.
5. "I Suppose Life Is Irregular!"
Sweet Sam Tarly hit the nail on the head when he proclaimed that yeah, life is pretty random, right? If you're just going with the flow and seeing where life takes you, you can confirm this is true.
6. "My Reign Has Just Begun."
Millenials are just getting started on their successful stronghold on this thing called life. Don't you try and stop us from seizing the world.
7. "The Past Is Already Written. The Ink Is Dry."
If you're not one to dwell on the past, you've got it made. And just like the Three-Eyed Raven, you're able to look on your past and learn, but there's no point in trying to change it.
8. "You Know Nothing, Jon Snow."
Oh god. Some days, you just can't. You literally can't. Don't worry, it happens. We all have our Jon Snow moments.
9. "Shame. Shame. Shame."
Sure, Cersei got shamed in public for her perceived sins, but I think this line works best in the context of her revenge on the Shame Nun. If you often find yourself taking the high road, reversing your own bad situations for the better, and finding the silver linings, you're probably murmuring this while you do it.
10. "I Am The Gift."
Tyrion's insane amounts of confidence, even when he's not in the easiest situations is so, so admirable. If you are just as blessed, then this line sums you up perfectly.
11. "We Go Forward. Only Forward."
Especially after a hectic post-election week, Stannis Baratheon's reference to moving forward in the face of adversity feels like an excellent summation of life at this present moment.
This is only a small portion of the amazing quotes from Game of Thrones that sum up your life to a T. Now, go channel your inner Tyrion, Sansa, or Cersei and get your best life.
