Davos Seaworth quotes by George R R Martin
#2. An admiral without ships, a hand without fingers, in service of a king without a throne. Is this a knight who comes before us, or the answer to a child's riddle? #Quote by George R R Martin
Davos Seaworth quotes by George R R Martin
#3. The galleys ... had been dirven onto the rocks of Skagos, the isle of unicorns and cannibals where even the Blind Bastard had feared to land. #Quote by George R R Martin
Davos Seaworth quotes by George R R Martin
#4. One voyage to the East and a man could live as rich as a lord until the end of his days. When he'd been younger, Davos had dreamed of making such voyages himself. But the years went dancing by like moths around a flame, and somehow the time had never been quite right. #Quote by George R R Martin
Davos Seaworth quotes by George R R Martin
#5. Our maester chuckled at me and told us that Prince Rhaegar was certain to defeat this rebel. That was when Stark said, 'In this world only winter is certain. We may lose our heads, it's true ... but what if we should prevail?' My father sent him on his way with his head still on his shoulders. 'If you lose,' he told Lord Eddard, 'you were never here.'"
"No more than I was," said Davos Seaworth. #Quote by George R R Martin
Davos Seaworth quotes by George R R Martin
#6. It is night in your Seven Kingdoms now,' the red woman went on, 'but soon the sun will rise again. The war continues, Davos Seaworth, and some will soon learn that even an ember in the ashes can still ignite a great blaze. The old maester looked at Stannis and saw only a man. You see a king. You are both wrong. He is the Lord's chosen, the warrior of fire. I have seen him leading the fight against the dark, I have seen it in the flames. The flames do not lie, else you would not be here. It is written in prophecy as well. When the red star bleeds and the darkness gathers, Azor Ahai shall be born again amidst smoke and salt to wake dragons out of stone. #Quote by George R R Martin
Davos Seaworth quotes by George R.R. Martin
#7. So tell me, Ser Davos Seaworth, and tell me truly - does your heart burn with the shining light of R'hllor? Or is it black and cold and full of worms? #Quote by George R.R. Martin
Davos Seaworth quotes by George R.R. Martin
#8. You esteem this Penrose more than you do my lords bannermen. Why?"
"He keeps faith."
"A misplaced faith in a dead usurper."
"Yes," Davos admitted, "but still, he keeps faith."
"As those behind us do not?"
Davos had come too far with Stannis to play coy now. "Last year they were Robert's men. A moon ago they were Renly's. This morning they are yours. Whose will they be on the morrow?"
And Stannis laughed. A sudden gust, rough and full of scorn. "I told you, Melisandre," he said to the red woman, "my Onion Knight tells me the truth."
"I see you know him well, Your Grace," the red woman said.
"Davos, I have missed you sorely," the king said. "Aye, I have a tail of traitors, your nose does not deceive you. My lords bannermen are inconstant even in their treasons. I need them, but you should know how it sickens me to pardon such as these when I have punished better men for lesser crimes. You have every right to reproach me, Ser Davos."
"You reproach yourself more than I ever could, Your Grace. You must have these great lords to win your throne - "
"Fingers and all, it seems." Stannis smiled grimly. #Quote by George R.R. Martin
Davos Seaworth quotes by Evan Davis
#9. But beginners to the World Economics Forum have to understand there is no single Davos experience, and there is no single Davos community either. There are numerous tribes who interact only at a minimal level. #Quote by Evan Davis
Davos Seaworth quotes by George R R Martin
#10. The Father protects his children, the septons taught, but Davos had led his boys into the fire. Dale would never give his wife the child they had prayed for, and Allard, with his girl in Oldtown and his girl in Kings Landing, and his girl in Braavos, they would all be weeping soon. Matthos would never captain his own ship, as he dreamed. Maric would never have his knighthood.
'How can I live when they are dead? So many brave knights and mighty lords have died, better men than me, and highborn. Crawl inside your cave, Davos. Crawl inside and shrink up small and the ship will go away, and no one will trouble you ever again. Sleep on your stone pillow and let the gulls peck out your eyes while the crabs feast on your flesh. You've feasted on enough of them, you owe them. Hide, smuggler. Hide, and be quiet, and die. #Quote by George R R Martin
Davos Seaworth quotes by Bill Gates
#11. The billion people who wake up every day trying to figure out if they have enough food to eat won't be at Davos. #Quote by Bill Gates
Davos Seaworth quotes by Bill Gates
#12. One of the most inventive forms of creative capitalism involves someone we all know very well. A few years ago, I was sitting in a bar here in Davos with Bono. Late at night, after a few drinks, he was on fire, talking about how we could get a percentage of each purchase from civic-minded companies to help change the world. He kept calling people, waking them up, and handing me the phone to show me the interest. #Quote by Bill Gates
Davos Seaworth quotes by Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva
#13. Here in Davos, it is generally assumed that there is now only one god - the market. #Quote by Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva
Davos Seaworth quotes by Samuel P. Huntington
#14. These transnationalists have little need for national loyalty, view national boundaries as obstacles that thankfully are vanishing, and see national governments as residues from the past whose only useful function is to facilitate the elite's global operations #Quote by Samuel P. Huntington
Davos Seaworth quotes by Hubert Burda
#15. Davos is my university. #Quote by Hubert Burda
Davos Seaworth quotes by George R R Martin
#16. And I know that a king protects his people, or he is no king at all. #Quote by George R R Martin
Davos Seaworth quotes by Thomas Frank
#17. But such people (Moderate Conservatives) aren't liberal. What they are is corporate. Their habits and opinions owe far more to the standards of courtesy and taste that prevail within the white-collar world than they do to Franklin Roosevelt and the United Mine Workers. We live in a time, after all, when hard-nosed bosses compose awestruck disquisitions on the nature of 'change,' punk rockers dispense leadership secrets, shallow profundities about authenticity sell luxury cars, tech billionaires build rock'n'roll musuems, management theorists ponder the nature of coolness, and a former lyricist fro the Grateful Dead hail the dawn of New Economy capitalism from the heights of Davos. Coversvatives may not understand why, but business culture had melded with counterculture for reasons having a great deal to do with business culture's usual priority - profit. #Quote by Thomas Frank
Davos Seaworth quotes by Bill Owens
#18. Ideally the world would look like Davos, where there's more security than we can even see on the street. #Quote by Bill Owens
Davos Seaworth quotes by Sheryl Sandberg
#19. At Facebook we feel a lot of affinity not just for this community but for any community that is trying to do what Davos is trying to do, which is to share information. And Davos is doing it in a particular way - I think the Facebook approach is obviously more broad-based, we're trying to include everyone in the world. But the goal is the same: bring people together, to share information and make the world more connected, and have people have a deeper understanding of themselves, others, the communities of which they want to be a part and can be a part. #Quote by Sheryl Sandberg
Davos Seaworth quotes by George R R Martin
#20. His hand reached for his throat, fumbling for the small leather pouch he always wore about his neck. Inside he kept the bones of the four fingers his king had shortened for him, on the day he made Davos a knight. My luck. His shortened fingers patted at his chest, groping, finding nothing. The pouch was gone, and the fingerbones with them. Stannis could never understand why he'd kept the bones. "To remind me of my king's justice," he whispered through cracked lips. But now they were gone. #Quote by George R R Martin
Davos Seaworth quotes by Bill Gates
#21. Well, it's taken time to get this going, but he was right. If you give people a chance to associate themselves with a cause they care about, while buying a great product, they will. That was how the RED Campaign was born, here in Davos. #Quote by Bill Gates
Davos Seaworth quotes by George R.R. Martin
#22. Renly offered me a peach. At our parley. Mocked me, defied me, threatened me, and offered me a peach. I thought he was drawing a blade and went for mine own. Was that his purpose, to make me show fear? Or was it one of his pointless jests? When he spoke of how sweet the peach was, did his words have some hidden meaning?" The king gave a shake of his head, like a dog shaking a rabbit to snap its neck. "Only Renly could vex me so with a piece of fruit. He brought his doom on himself with his treason, but I did love him, Davos. I know that now. I swear, I will go to my grave thinking of my brother's peach. #Quote by George R.R. Martin
Davos Seaworth quotes by George R R Martin
#23. Davos had often heard it said that the wizards of Valyria did not cut and chisel as common masons did, but worked stone with fire and magic as a potter might work clay. #Quote by George R R Martin
Davos Seaworth quotes by George R R Martin
#24. Melisandre laughed again. "You are lost in darkness and confusion, Ser Davos."
"And a good thing." Davos gestured at the distant lights flickering along the walls of Storm's End. "Feel how cold the wind is? The guards will huddle close to those torches. A little warmth, a little light, they're a comfort on a night like this. Yet that will blind them, so they will not see us pass." I hope. "The god of darkness protect us now, my lady, Even you. #Quote by George R R Martin
Davos Seaworth quotes by George R R Martin
#25. Davos enjoyed a good story as well as any man, but Stannis had not named him Hand for his enjoyment, he felt. His first duty was to help his king rule, and for that he must needs understand the words the ravens brought. The best way to learn a thing was to do it, he had found; sails or scrolls, it made no matter. #Quote by George R R Martin
Davos Seaworth quotes by Hubert Burda
#26. The 'spirit of Davos' has definitely achieved a thing or two. #Quote by Hubert Burda
