Quote of the Day

Now he has the court so obedient and we are such fools, if he does not want to think of something, then none of us says it. If he loses his son and cannot bear the grief, then the boy is buried out of sight. And when he next wants to do something which is completely wrong, we will find that he has grown stronger still. He can deny the truth and nobody will argue with him.

~ Margaret Pole,
on King Henry VIII

— Philippa Gregory, The King’s Curse
