Tyrion Lannister initially gave an impression of a lusty dwarf who wanted nothing else but his lusty wishes to be fulfilled and yes how can forget his love for WINE?!? Soon later we all came to realize that yes he’s a wine lover but he has got way more than this… HIS EFFICIENT BRAIN FUNCTIONALITY.
Game of Thrones has show cased so many things and most appreciable are the inspirational and smart dialogues of Tyrion Lannister. For his whole life, he has faced humiliation from almost everyone and I guess this had made him think on broad deck. He’s not the person who would let himself killed by the comments and perceptions of others. He has taken all the criticism inside and came up as a wise dwarf who “DRINKS AND KNOWS THINGS.”
Here, I’ll be illuminating ten of Tyrion’s quotes which will definitely help you understand and think over things even the worst one, positively, in your life.
“Let me give you some advice, bastard. Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.” Tyrion to Jon.
This is dialogue is for a bastard but we can perceive it according to our own situation. Being bastard is JON’s biggest flaw but Tyrion made him realize that accept this reality and learn to live with it. Most of all make it your strength and let no one make you feel bad about yourself. This is what we really need to do with our own selves and be proud of ourselves for whoever we are.
“Let them see that their words can cut you and you’ll never be free of the mockery. If they want to give you a name takes it make it your own. Then they can’t hurt you with it anymore.”[irp]
Here he is mesmerizing again. Don’t keep your ears on what others say about you because if you do their words will haunt you till forever and no one can help you then.
“And a mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone.” Tyrion to Jon again.
Yes that’s true! Books make you learn about things with better understanding without putting you in such situations. Books are always helpful in making you wise and smart.
“The great thing about reading is that it broadens your life.”
This is pretty much relevant to the above quote and proves that books are literally your best friends.
“When you tear out a man’s tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you’re only telling the world that you fear what he might say.”[irp]
REALITY, REALITY, REALITY.
“The powerful have always preyed on the powerless, that’s how they became powerful in the first place”
In the most cases, this is the truth. People or kingdoms get power on the charge of weak and defend less communities which is not fair at all as suppressing and enforcement of rule has never been declared just.
“Death is so final, yet life is full of possibilities.”[irp]
Oh he’s giving us hope. Never be hopeless in life because you never know that what’s next and what will be the turning point of your life. Mostly, today’s sorrows and difficulties lead to tomorrow’s success and victories.
“You’re a clever man. But you’re not half as clever as you think you are.” Said Cersie.
“Still makes me twice as claver as you are.” replied Tyrion.
Tyrion would never let himself be underestimated ever and so shouldn’t you. Nothing can suppress you until you don’t let anyone make it possible. Belief in yourself is what makes you withstand everyone.
“Laughing at another person’s misery was the only thing that made me feel like everyone else.” Lannister to Jamie.[irp]
He’s different and he’s not in the favor of following any discouraging behavior which can hurt anyone in any possible way. We must adopt this deportment as well.
“I have a tender spot in my heart for cripples and bastards and broken things.”[irp]
It’s not just limited to cripples and bastards; we should be polite and soft towards everyone who deserves it. Good etiquettes and behavior is key identity of a wise human.
