When I Die

A few days ago, I was watching 'Game of Thrones' and heard this gem of a line.
It's the most beautiful piece of screenwriting - a simple little thing, delicately constructed and spoken with devastating charm by a handsome devil of a man (seriously, you both loathe him and lust for him).
He's prisoner in an enemy camp and chained to a post. His fortunes have turned against him most radically.

Poor Evil Jaime Lannister

And almost as though he were lounging on a billion dollar yacht, he delivers the line that is going to be my epitaph:

"My life has left me uniquely unfit for constraint."
