Lord Varys: The first to arrive and the last to leave. I admire your industry.
Petyr Baelish: You do move quietly.
Lord Varys: We all have our qualities.

Lord Varys: I think you are mistaking business with pleasure.
Bran Stark: I will never shoot another arrow.
Maester Luwin: And where is that written?
Bran Stark: You need legs to work a bow.
