35 Petyr Baelish Quotes From Game Of Thrones' Littlefinger

Some Petyr Baelish quotes to make you appreciate him more.

Lord Baelish, also known as "Littlefinger", is the 'Master of Coins' in the council of King Robert Baratheon.

When we meet first meet him, Lord Baelish comes across as an unlikely ally to the Starks in King's Landing. Unfortunately, we find out soon enough as the story progresses that the only attachment this man has, is to himself.

Growing up as an orphan with the Tullys, his ambition and cunning are the only things that have turned that sickly little boy into a powerful man. His claim that he has loved Catelyn Stark like no other and his confession of his love to Sansa turn out to be false, as we come to know that he is the reason for the beginning of their downfall. From the poisoning of Jon Arryn to selling Sansa to the Boltons, it was all his doing. We cannot help but cheer for Sansa when after years of manipulation, she finally beats Lord Baelish at his own game. That is why to appreciate all the lessons Lord Baelish taught us, we have compiled a list of Littlefinger quotes for fans to enjoy.
