Today in Middle-Earth: Pippin offers Denethor his service in return for Boromir’s saving him. (March 9th, 3019 T.A.)
‘Take the hilt,’ said Gandalf, ‘and speak after the Lord, if you are resolved on this.’
’I am,’ said Pippin.
The old man laid the sword along his lap, and Pippin put his hand to the hilt, and said slowly after Denethor:
’Here do I swear fealty and service to Gondor, and to the Lord and Steward of the realm, to speak and to be silent, to do and to let be, to come and to go, in need or plenty, in peace or war, in living or dying, from this hour henceforth, until my lord release me, or death take me, or the world end. So say I, Peregrin son of Paladin of the Shire of the Halflings.’
‘And this do I hear, Denethor son of Ecthelion, Lord of Gondor, Steward of the High King, and I will not forget it, nor fail to reward that which is given: fealty with love, valour with honour, oath-breaking with vengeance.’ Then Pippin received back his sword and put it in its sheath.
Godric Gryffindor and Salazar Slytherin.
«By Gryffindor, the bravest were
Prized far beyond the rest;
And power-hungry Slytherin
Loved those of great ambition»
«You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart;
Or perhaps in Slytherin
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means
To achieve their ends.»
«For were there such friends anywhere
As Slytherin and Gryffindor?»

As an outside; don’t worry about failure, because failure will take care of itself. Focus on success.

pre-asoiaf characters ♔ Elia Martell (257-283 AL)Elia Martell was a princess of Dorne. She married the crown prince, Rhaegar Targaryen, and by him birthed Rhaenys and Aegon. She was a gentle, good and gracious lady, but frail due to her delicate health. According to Barristan Selmy, she was kind and clever, with a sweet wit. She was said to be very fair, with the typical Martell features: dark hair, black eyes and olive skin. At the Tourney at Harrenhal, Rhaegar met Lyanna Stark and apparently became infatuated with her. He won the tournament and crowned her Queen of Love and Beauty, passing over Elia. A year later Rhaegar either abducted or ran off with Lyanna, and this event sparked Robert’s Rebellion. Aerys kept Elia and both of her children in King’s Landing as hostages against possible Dornish betrayal and she was murdered by Ser Gregor Clegane during the sack of King’s Landing.
