Nothing someone says before the word but really counts
Listen, BenjenMay I call you Benjené Call me what you like. I'm not sure what I'vedone to offend you. I have great admirationfor the Night's Watch. I've great admirationfor you as First Ranger. You know, my brotheronce told me that nothing someone saysbefore the word quot;butquot; really counts.
But I don't believe that giantsand ghouls and White Walkers are lurking beyond the Wall. I believe thatthe only difference between us andthe wildlings is that when the Wall went up,our ancestors happened to live onthe right side of it. You're right.
The wildlings areno different from us. A little rougher maybe. But they're madeof meat and bone. I know how to track themand I know how to kill them. It's not the wildlingsgiving me sleepless nights. You've never beennorth of the Wall, so don't tell mewhat's out there.
