Quotes by Goodwin

Men will always underestimate you,[...], and their pride will make them want to vanquish you quickly, let it be said that a woman tried them sorely. Let them spend their strength in furious attacks, whilst you conserve your own. Wait and watch, girl, wait and watch.[2]

—one of Goodwin's lessons to Brienne Tarth
