With Game of Thrones George R.R. Martin crafted a universe full of (tons and tons and tons) complicated and complex characters. Many of the main characters have strong, individualized voices and even out of context, almost any quote can be quickly placed to its speaker. In a world of dozens of characters that is no small feat. Varys is one of the sneakiest people in the realm, and his quotes reflect this.

Varys, or "The Spider," is a eunuch and a skilled manipulator. His entire persona is shaped around controlling people with what he has to say, and what his many spies throughout King's Landing and the realm have found out. This results in some great Varys quotes and many plot twists.
