  • Quotes (3)

    • Thomas Cromwell: You will be sewn in a sack and thrown in the river Thames if you don't speedily hold your tongue. Sir George Throckmorton: Keep your threats for your fellow courtiers. As for us friars, we take no account of them at all since we know very well that the way to heaven is as good by water as by land.

    • Charles Brandon: Someone told me you were once a mercenary soldier. Thomas Cromwell: I saw some action in my youth, as did Your Grace, I believe? Charles Brandon: But I was never a soldier of fortune. If I displeased the king, it was in a good cause. Thomas Cromwell: I'm sure, although some would argue otherwise. Charles Brandon: Like you? Thomas Cromwell: I'd never have the temerity to argue with Your Grace. Charles Brandon: Not to my face anyway.

    • Thomas Wyatt: A court without ladies is like a garden without flowers.
