Quotes / Evil Uncle

Ah, for some retreat
Deep in yonder shining Orient, where my life began to beat;

Where in wild Mahratta-battle fell my father evil-starr'd,ó
I was left a trampled orphan, and a selfish uncle's ward.
Alfred, Lord Tennyson, "Locksley Hall"

Ser Godfry Farring: If the nephew dies in chains, these uncles can claim his lands and lordship for themselves.
Jon Snow: The Greatjon has sons and daughters both. In the north the children of a manís body still come before his uncles, ser.
Ser Godry: Unless they die. Dead children come last everywhere.
George R. R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons
