In a world of young attention getting fools (back in my day, we got attention the old fashioned way, through drunken brawls or moments of glory in sporting events; a hundred tweets and retweets only meant your car would be spattered with bird shit), I prefer to think we are more like Davos, based on these quotes:

Jon Snow: I think she has a good heart.
Davos Seaworth: A good heart? [teasing] I’ve noticed you staring at her good heart.

Jon Snow: So if you wanted to sail home to Naath tomorrow?
Missandei: Then she would give me a ship and wish me good fortune.
Jon Snow: And you believe that?
Missandei: I know it. All of us who came with her from Essos, we believe in her. She’s not our Queen because she’s the daughter of some King we never knew: she’s the Queen we chose.
Davos Seaworth: [to Jon] Will you forgive me if I switch sides?

And the classic…

Davos Seaworth: [exasperated at the stupidity of Jon and Gendry] Nobody mind me. All I’ve ever done is lived to a ripe old age.
