Beric Dondarrion: You and I won't find much joy while we're here, but we can keep others alive. We can defend those who can't defend themselves.
Jon Snow: "I am the shield that guards the realms of men."
Beric Dondarrion: Maybe we don't need to understand any more than that. Maybe that's enough.
Beric Dondarrion: I'm not fighting so some man or woman I barely know can sit on a throne made of swords.
Jon Snow: So, what are you fighting for?
Beric Dondarrion: Life. Death is the enemy. The first enemy and the last.
Jon Snow: But we all die.
Beric Dondarrion: The enemy always wins. And we still need to fight him. That's all I know.
