Quotes about Quincy

Meribald: Ser Quincy is an old many. His sons and good-sons are far away or dead, his grandsons are still boys, and he has two daughters. What could he have done, one man against so many?
Elder Brother: True words, and wise. When you cross to Saltpans, no doubt Ser Quincy will ask you for forgiveness. I am glad you are here to give it. I could not.[2]

Meribald and the Elder Brother

He could have tried. He could have died. Young or old, a true knight is sworn to protect those who are weaker than himself, or die in the attempt.[2]
