Hilary Mantel
“In the forest you may find yourself lost, without companions. You may come to a river which is not on a map. You may lose sight of your quarry, and forget why you are there. You may meet a dwarf, or the living Christ, or an old enemy of yours; or a new enemy, one you do not know until you see his face appear between the rustling leaves, and see the glint of his dagger. You may find a woman asleep in a bower of leaves. For a moment, before you don’t recognise her, you will think she is someone you know.”
Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall

Oliver Cromwell
“Sir, what can be said of these things? Is it the arm of the flesh that hath done these things? Is it the wisdom and counsel, or strength of man? It is the Lord only. God will curse that man and his house that dares to think otherwise. Sir, you see the work is done by a Divine leading. God gets into the hearts of men, and persuades them to come under you.”
Oliver Cromwell, Cromwell's Letters and Speeches: Volume Two

Hilary Mantel
“You don't get on by being original. You don't get on by being bright. You don't get on by being strong. You get on by being a subtle crook.”
