Fighting Their Battles

Alliser Thorne: I had a choice, Lord Commander: betray you or betray the Night's Watch. You brought an army of wildlings into our lands. An army of murderers and raiders. If I had to do it all over knowing where I'd end up, I pray I'd make the right choice again.

Jon Snow: I'm sure you would, Ser Alliser.

Alliser Thorne: I fought, I lost. Now I rest. But you, Lord Snow, you'll be fighting their battles forever.

That's The End

Alliser Thorne: Do you know what leadership means, Lord Snow? It means that the person in charge gets second-guessed by every clever little tw*t with a mouth. But if he starts second-guessing himself, that's the end. For him... for the clever little tw*ts... for everyone. This is not the end, not for us. Not if you lot do your duty for however long it takes to beat them back. And then you get to go on hating me, and I get to go on wishing your wildling wh*re had finished the job.
