    “When my dragons are grown, we will take back what was stolen from me and destroy those who wronged me! We will lay waste to armies and burn cities to the ground!”

    “I am not your little princess.”

    “You’re both here to advise me. I value your advice, but if you ever question me in front of strangers again, you’ll be advising someone else. Is that understood?”

    “Unsullied! Slay the masters, slay the soldiers, slay every man who holds a whip, but harm no child. Strike the chains off every slave you see!”

    “I don’t want to be his Queen. I want to go home.”

    “A mother does not flee without her children.”

    “I am no ordinary woman, my dreams come true.”

    “I am a Khaleesi of the Dothraki! I am the wife of the great Khal and I carry his son inside me! The next time you raise a hand to me will be the last time you have hands.”

    “I am Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, of the blood of Old Valyeria. I am the dragon’s daughter, and I swear to you that those who would harm you will die screaming.”

    “Woman? Is that meant to insult me? I would return the slap, if I took you for a man.”

    “Look at my face. It will be the last thing you see before you die”

    “He was no dragon. Fire cannot kill a dragon.”

    “Until the sun rises in the west and sets in the east, until the rivers run dry and the mountains blow in the wind like leaves. When my womb quickens again, and I bear a living child. Then you will return, my sun-and-stars, and not before.”

    “I will do what Queens do. I will rule.”

    “It takes courage to admit fear… and to admit a mistake.”

    “If I look back, I am lost.”
