That which concerns the mystery of the King's power is not lawful to be disputed; for that is to wade into the weakness of Princes, and to take away the mystical reverence that belongs unto them that sit in the throne of God.
James I of England
Brevity is the soul of wit.
There are only two things: soul and body. My soul I offer to God and my body to Your Majesty's service, and may it please you to kill me rather than take away the old religion in which I wish to live and die.
Mary I of England
No one else holds or has held the place in the heart of the world which Jesus holds. Other gods have been as devoutly worshipped; no other man has been so devoutly loved.
No more tears now; I will think about revenge.
Mary Queen Of Scots
Be so true to thyself as thou be not false to others.
