120 Best Quotes from Game of Thrones

HBO’s Original Game of Thrones is arguably one of the most anticipated and hyped shows throughout television history. Up until season five, Game of Thrones followed the storyline of the infamous fantasy book series written by George R. R. Martin. However, since Martin’s sixth book has not been released onto shelves yet, Game of Thrones season six was written by HBO blind to Martin’s plan. This show is known for its fantastic humor, betrayal, love, and action.

Here’s the scoop on the best quotes from Game of Thrones!
