“There is No Safety You Dumb Bitch” -The Hound

from The Daily Bell:

Take heed of The Hound’s warning, and let it free you. There is no guarantee of a job or safety net, there is no absolute security from evil doers, and there is only so much you can do to prevent accidents and illness. The silver lining is that recognizing this is the best way to cushion yourself from the vulnerabilities of an unpredictable world.

Brienne of Tarth, in Game of Thrones, is noble in her cause, and intends to uphold an oath she swore to Lady Stark to keep her children safe. But she is also a bit naive about the nature of the world in which she lives.

Brienne thinks she can bring Arya to a safe place, wherever that is. But as The Hound so eloquently reminds her:

“There is no safety you dumb bitch. And if you don’t know that by now, you’re the wrong one to watch over her.”

If Brienne thinks she can ever let her guard down, or relax, she will never be safe. There is no destination at which point she and Arya will be ultimately secure. It just does not exist.

And Sandor Clegane–The Hound–is right; if Brienne of Tarth cannot understand this basic fact about the world, she is not capable of keeping Arya safe.

The Hound’s negative view on the danger of the world actually leaves him less vulnerable. He never expects to be safe, and is therefore safer because he is alert to danger.

As rough and tumble as the Hound is, Arya was in fact safe the entire time she was with him. This was no guarantee, its just how it happened, mostly due to the fact that The Hound knows there is no safety to be had, except by vigilance in every moment.

There is no safe place, there is no safe time, and there are no safe people to be with. This keeps him alert and in a secure position to deal with threats.
