Do you wonder why the men of the Night’s Watch take their wives and father no children? So they will not love. Love is the death of duty… but what is honor compared to a woman’s love? What is duty against the feel of a newborn son in your arms? We all do our duty when there’s no cost to it, honor comes easy then. But sooner or later, in every mans life, there comes a day when it is not easy. A day when he must choose.
