wolsey quotes - 10 of
Had I but served my God with half the zeal
I served my King, He would not in mine age ...
If we shall stand still
In fear our motion will be mocked or carped at, ...
O how wretched
Is that poor man that hangs on princes' favours! ...
He gave his honors to the world again,
His blessed part to heaven, and slept in peace.
Read o'er this,
And after this, and then to breakfast with What appetite you have.
You have many enemies, that know not
Why they are so, but, like to village curs, Bark when their fellows do.
Heat not a furnace for your foe so hot
That it do singe yourself.
After my death I wish no other herald,
No other speaker of my living actions ...
Whom I most hated living, thou hast made me
With thy religious truth and modesty, Now in his ashes honor.
