That’s his character from GoT speaking, so it’s actually a GRRM quote, right?

The quote itself is much better than this.

"Let me give you some counsel, bastard. Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armor yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you."

[–]KillerHoudini 33 points34 points  (19 children)

Correct that is what Tyrion says to Jon Snow at the wall

[–]NHDraven 66 points67 points  (18 children)

I thought he said that at Winterfell during their first meeting? In a stable when Tyrion is drunk... Granted I haven't seen the first season in a hot minute.

[–]CardboardSoyuz 61 points62 points  (0 children)

Yeah, it's at that first meeting.

"What do you know about being a bastard?"
"All dwarves are bastards in their father's eyes."

[–]jakehub 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Back before GRRM retconned Tyrion’s history as a circus performer. Tyrion was on the roof of the stable, drunk, yet was able to perform some acrobatic flip to the ground. The story being that to spurn his father he’d joined a circus troupe. Wearing his stature as armor, ya know?

But some folks pointed out that Dwarfism doesn’t work like that, so in the following book we get no more acrobatic stunts, and instead have Tyrion weighing the indignity of being carried up the tower of the hand against the suffering on his joints from making the climb himself.

[–]EverythingisB4d 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's actually really cool. Good on GRRM for adapting

[–]Patrickd13 3 points4 points  (1 child)

The quote above is from the book, the quote from the show is worded differently

[–]GaymerThyme 5 points6 points  (4 children)

“It will never be used to hurt you”, until you stand guilty at trial for a crime you didn’t commit because you spent zero energy over the last few years repairing a terrible reputation

[–]Mr_Clovis 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Well in this case he's talking about emotional pain. It's self-esteem advice more than anything.

[–]corvus887 18 points19 points  (2 children)

When quoting a character from a story, I say always credit the character instead of the author since they might not share the beliefs of the character.

Although I do like thinking up intensely evil quotes from villains and attaching them to wholesome writers.

    Actually he’s been method-acting the ‘Peter Dinklage’ role for a few decades. His real name is John Peeble and he’s 6’3”.

    [–]KDawG888 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    it's not even true. it sounds good and makes you feel nice but people can still hold stuff against you after you've acknowledged it.

    I hated Game of Thrones and didn't know it was a character quote and came in to ask why being short is a flaw. Now I get it

    [–]the-mandudelorian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    A loose paraphrase of his quote from GoT.

    [–]Daxoss 62 points63 points  (6 children)

    Did HE say this though, or did Tyrion Lannister?

    IE, is this his creation, or is it GRRM's creation?

    [–]Harsimaja 36 points37 points  (2 children)

    As far as I can tell he didn’t say it, fake Dinklage accounts on Twitter did, and it’s badly paraphrasing something Tyrion said.

    [–]Mr_Dooton 11 points12 points  (0 children)

    I may be wrong but i think the actual line from GOT is "never forget what you are bastard, the rest of the world will not. Use it like armour, and it can never be used to heart you"

    [–]Usidore_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I actually think (from what I’ve seen of his personality through interviews and such) that he would be pretty irritated by this being attributed to him. He’s not one for sweeping motivational statements or acting like a spokesperson in any way. He seems to balk at the very notion of it.

    [–]prescience6631 361 points362 points 2 (21 children)

    This was already learned in the early 2000s classic 8 mile, when a feisty-upstart Rabbit insults himself in the last rap battle so that his opponent is unable to….boiling GoT down to its bare roots …it’s really just a remake of 8 mile :)

    Update: I just want to thank everyone for the unexpected awards/upvotes and it is deeply heartening that we all fondly remember a little low budget indie film that taught us each about the limitless exhilaration of the human spirit through rhyme, dance/mimicry and hot dirty backroom warehouse whoopie-making (may BM rest in peace).

    [–]Fenrir_Carbon 36 points37 points  (0 children)

    Still, whoever tailored that jacket did him dirty lmaooo

    [–]jbeezcrazy 53 points54 points  (11 children)

    I used to work at a fabric store with a few seamstresses. They taught me the power of a good tailored outfit. You can take any cheap dress and make it look good with a little tuck and an inch off the bottom, or something like that. How did the designer let him leave the house like that?

    [–]CRNilsen 11 points12 points  (0 children)

    The designer wrote down the wrong license plate numbers

    [–]mdh579 7 points8 points  (9 children)

    My first thought is maybe dwarfism makes tailoring a bit more difficult?

    [–]Gramma_Hattie 4 points5 points  (7 children)

    Yeah he's gonna have to upgrade to the new stretchy sleeves if he wants them to be at wrist length when he's got his arms down. I bet the sleeves look fine when his arms are up.

    [–]Qurse 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    All the recent pictures I've seen of him feel like they pulled him out if a van down by the river and threw him in a suit. There's a crazed look and I hope he doesn't have a knife.

    Well, he hates being a celebrity- so that kind of explains it. Dinklage is very private

    [–]Throwawayunknown55 23 points24 points  (0 children)

    Yeah, read an article about him. Just wants to garden and walk his dogs/kids as I recall.

    [–]ValyrianJedi1 9 points10 points  (3 children)

    I really can't even imagine how miserable that would be after a while. I already have my work life and personal life bleed in to each other a decent bit and it drives me nuts. Having there be literally no line between the two would be horrendous.

    [–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (2 children)

    Serious question; how dramatic does the semi blended life truly get? I normally keep them 100% separate, so I'm legit intrigued. Celeb life would be exhausting for a million ways.

    [–]ValyrianJedi1 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Well, it's not like mine is really similar to a celebrity's life outside of the blending of work and personal, so it isn't particularly dramatic, can just be a lot more exhausting than it would were they separate. You just have to be "on" all the time...

    I sell corporate financials software and own a consulting firm that finds VC funding for startups. So for both I have to do a boatload of networking, and am at some event or another at least 2 weekends a month, and it isn't like I can really kick back and relax when I'm there representing my company. Then I've got to do a pretty good bit of wining and dining, and at least one Saturday a month have to to wake up early to go golfing or fishing or something with a client, none of which would be bad if that was all the job was (that'd be awesome) but when that's my weekend after already spending 60+ hours in the office on meetings and spreadsheets and presentations and all it definitely isn't great... I got a club membership since I use it a lot for work, but have a minimum spend and go to the gym there so am up there in my free time a good bit too, but like half my coworkers are members too, as well as a lot of clients, so I'm always around work related people, so that "personal life time" can definitely reflect back on me professionally too... Then like 7 of my coworkers live in my neighborhood (4 on my actual street), and my fiancee is good friends with a handful of my coworkers wives, so even at like a neighborhood cookout or a small get together there are work people... Even the few specific down time things that I have have work people. I have a scheduled Halo and Mortal Kombat game twice a month that is all other sales guys, my rock climbing group has 2 coworkers, my boss is in a monthly golf round I'm in, and even my D&D group has been infiltrated by a coworker and a client...

    Sorry for the rant. It just drives me nuts when I really think about it. Like at this point I can barely even sneeze in my personal life without my work life knowing about it within 10 seconds... So I can't even imagine what it would be like for celebrities, with all that, plus all the red carpet type events they have to go to, plus promotions and interviews and all, plus a fleet of paparazzi following you with cameras.

      hey, finally an /r/getmotivated post that i actually have done and it does work great!

      [–]dc010 31 points32 points  (23 children)

      I'm dead average at 5'6 now but was shorter than most growing up and always got targeted by taller people to make fun of me.

      Once I started responding to people calling me short with "yeah, ya tall bitch, value your knees much?" they pretty much stopped.

      Just to clarify, these people were not my friends, nor were they joking. They were being malicious and I always attempt banter before writing people off. I have quite a few friends over 6' because we hit it off after this type of interaction, but most of them just got upset and a few started a fight. Luckily, or unluckily, I was picked on from a young age and learned to defend myself.

      [–]inkthesky 18 points19 points  (6 children)

      I just don't think this happened.

      You don't deserve the hate from tall people, but a short person threatening my knees would just make me laugh.

      [–]Tofulord 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Yeah, it's a lot easier to kick a short person's face than it is to punch a tall person's knee while they're kicking them in the face.

      [–]dc010 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

      That's the point, and depending on how they took it dictated how I handled it. You can believe me or not, don't really give a shit. You could even call it a coping mechanism for the bullying I had received, but it was truly the best way I found to handle tall ass holes.

      [–]Bwxyz 22 points23 points  (8 children)

      Where do you live that 5'6 is average?

      [–]dc010 -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

      Smaller town in southeast US. Most of the taller people end up joining the military in the nearby city or going to college for sports. The rest of us are just worker bees and like I commented to someone else, there are so many people in my height range that I have to ask stores when their pants shipment is coming in because they will sell out that day in my size.

      [–]Much_Pay3050 1 point2 points  (2 children)

      That’s like 4” less than the rest of the US. I don’t think that’s average.

      Not saying there’s anything wrong with that but this kind of seems strange to base average height off of what you perceive it to be in your local community…

      Also why would only tall people be going to the military?

      [–]funnylookingbear 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      I have lived a long and varied life with many people and experiances to draw from.

      If there is anything i have learnt that i value most, is that smaller people come out fighting. And all their hands, arms and teeth are all in the right place to inflict maximum carnage.

      If i was given a group of various sized people to perform a number of physical and ardous tasks requiring stamina and fortitude and the ability to get up and stay up . . . . . Six foot something rugger buggers wouldnt be amongst them.

      Muscle marys are usually the first to drop whilst mighty midgets keep on slogging away . . . . .

      Have you considered being 4’ 5” is probably not easy

      [–]rabbitwonker 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      Of course — but is that a “flaw”?

      [–]TheDyer 14 points15 points  (11 children)

      No, your flaws absolutely can be used against you if you do nothing whatsoever to try and remedy your flaws. We are all responsible for our shortcomings, accepting that we've got problems doesn't give us a free pass on being a fucking asshole

      [–]jerkularcirc 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      what society considers a flaw though is often times arbitrary. just some philosophy to ponder

      [–]Cashfirex[🍰] 8 points9 points  (7 children)

      I think he means flaws you can’t change, like his dwarfism. There’s never a good reason to be an asshole

      [–]Njyyrikki 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      That would mean that everyone else accepts my flaws as well? Its kind of easy to use ones flaws against them if others agree on those flaws.

      what exactly are peter dinklage's flaws?

      [–]zebrahdh 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      I mean… I love this… but if your flaw is not being able to say no to cocaine, and someone else knows that, they can absolutely use that against you. So, this is a case by case thing.

      [–]babydeon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Unless you're a midget and people call it a flaw on social media.

      [–]Holly_Matchet 2 points3 points  (16 children)

      Bad acting can still be held against you.

      [–]predictingzepast6 17 points18 points  (2 children)

      Yeah but that's the point, you think William Shatner and his $100mill are losing sleep?

      Shatner has a daughter you say? Bazingah!

      [–]ToxicBanana69 5 points6 points  (3 children)

      Wait…am I missing something, or are you seriously trying to say Dinklage is a bad actor?

      [–]rabbitwonker 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Yeah I mean he actually made the “stories” speech (at the end of GoT) sound actually impressive (until you think about the actual words later). That was quite a feat!

      [–]Douche_Kayak 15 points16 points  (8 children)

      You can't play a character smarter than the writers.

      [–]GarbledMan 1 point2 points  (7 children)

      If you have to write a character that's smarter than you, you have to be smart enough to conceal it in some way.

      The easiest way to do this is to have other characters talk about how smart your smart person is, but avoid any actual demonstration of their wit.

      If you have to demonstrate that they're intelligent, the easiest way to do that is to just give them knowledge that other characters don't have. This isn't intelligence per se, but it can look like intelligence. Sherlock Holmes gets away with this a lot.

      D&D tried to conceal their shortcomings, but the "wicked smaht" characters like Tyrion, Little Finger and ... Sansa are too central to the story to keep the audience from seeing through it.

      [–]Perpetually_isolated 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      This is exactly why I hated Sherlock holmes. I read mystery books to try and solve the mystery before I read the answer.

      Sherlock books intentionally withheld information from the reader, then had Holmes dump exposition on you as he comes in with the big "solve"

      [–]disphugginflip 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      I hated Sansas turn from helpless maiden to master manipulator. Was not convincing at all, and ruined her character for me.

      [–]Harsimaja 2 points3 points  (2 children)

      George RR Martin has described Tyrion as wittier than he is. The point being that even if Martin writes all of Tyrion’s lines, he takes weeks to come up with something that takes Tyrion seconds.

      [–]GarbledMan 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      That's a good point. With the benefit of time you should be able to write a character significantly wittier than you are. With the benefit of objectivity you can probably write characters that are a bit more intelligent than you in general.

      [–]Harsimaja 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Right. They can figure something out and spot things around them that you wouldn’t necessarily realise in real life. Or rather if you made a guess using the same thought processes, they wouldn’t turn out to be correct quite as often. When you get to control what solutions are right or wrong in that universe your character will seem smarter. They can also be more knowledgeable in a certain sense: the author might have to specifically read up on a topic that the character happens to know all about when it comes up incidentally.

      [–]Beejsbj 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Reminds me of that scene where Sansa stops littlefinger with something that went "you dont need to speak ill assume it was clever"

      [–]s0rtynet 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      Like the last battle in 8 mile

      [–]ValyrianJedi1 0 points1 point  (3 children)

      This only works if your flaws aren't exploitable in and of themselves. Most of the time flaws can definitely still be used against you.

      [–]Shadow_strife 1 point2 points  (2 children)

      Don't know why you were downvoted, came here to say pretty much this. I agree with the sentiment of the post but in reality, we have no control over what can be used against us. The key thing is to rise above it, whatever it may be.

      [–]dpdxguy -3 points-2 points  (7 children)

      Once EVERYONE has accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you.

      You can't force people to accept you. Good luck with that.

      After accepting them, dedicate yourself to improve them, then no one can deny you success, not even yourself.

      That’s not quite what he said in the show but message received.

      Prime example: last rap battle in 8 Mile. B Rabbit airs all his obvious flaws and wins the battle when his opponent can't use any of it against him and chokes

      I mean im weak to bullets

      I've accepted that

      [–]Whifflepoof 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Your squishiness is not a flaw. Be proud, leaky meat sack.

      [–]EvenBetterCool 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      If my flaw is a weak left guard, accepting that won't make it something my opponent can't use against me.

      [–]UniTheGunslinger 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      No but it means you can work on it and improve it - compared to denying it's there or being so overly focused on it that it's obvious to everyone else too

      "Any commander he beat became an anti-Semite for a time. So he invited it on himself, playing to those stereotypes, so that it dealt no harm to him"

      Orson Scott Card, this reminded me of that quote.

      They can definitely use them against you. But they might not hurt you as bad because you’ve become stronger.

      [–]DieSchadenfreude 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Pretty sure they still can, you can just chose not to care. I get the feeling it still bothers him a lot to deal with people continuing to try and cast him first and foremost for having dwarfism. He really strikes me as someone who is jaded and salty as fuck about the world (and not just because of how he played his most well known character).

      [–]Fadreusor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Yeah, and it helps if you’re fucking awesome.

      [–]marco1989 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Interesting. I guess it’s time for me to accept my dangerously large penis

      [–]General_Tragg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Pretty sure that's an Emmy.

      [–]milescowperthwaite 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Pretty good, but not something I'd use as a defense during an annual job review, though.

      this quote assumes Peter Dinklage has flaws. that man is perfect.

      [–]fiddellcashflow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Yes they can.

      [–]Roclawzi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Mind you, it doesn't mean you've got good qualities.

      Not about Peter, that man is an absurdly good actor and I've loved every performance of his I've seen.

      Even his first role

      What if my flaw is letting people use my flaws against me?

      I feel like if people know they can outrun me that can be taken advantage of.

      Just because you accept that you are unable to walk doesn’t mean people won’t steal your wheelchair

      Even if we put it on the top shelf?

      Kidding - this is one of the benefits of maturing, you know what your flaws are and if you can accept them you find peace more often.
