Quotes Melanie Liked

Hilary Mantel
“The fate of peoples is made like this, two men in small rooms. Forget the coronations, the conclaves of cardinals, the pomp and processions. This is how the world changes: a counter pushed across a table, a pen stroke that alters the force of a phrase, a woman's sigh as she passes and leaves on the air a trail of orange flower or rose water; her hand pulling close the bed curtain, the discreet sigh of flesh against flesh.”
Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall

Hilary Mantel
“Over the city lies the sweet, rotting odor of yesterday's unrecollected sins.”
Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall

Hilary Mantel
“Arrange your face”
Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall

Hilary Mantel
“At New Year's he had given Anne a present of silver forks with handles of rock crystal. He hopes she will use them to eat with, not to stick in people.”
Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall

“He thinks, I remembered you, Thomas More, but you didn't remember me. You never even saw me coming.”
Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall
