« Un baiser, mais à tout prendre, qu'est-ce?
Un serment fait d'un peu plus près, une promesse
Plus précise, un aveu qui veut se confirmer,
Un point rose qu'on met sur l'i du verbe aimer;
C'est un secret qui prend la bouche pour oreille,
Un instant d'infini qui fait un bruit d'abeille ,
Une communion ayant un goût de fleur ,
Une façon d'un peu se respirer le coeur,
Et d'un peu se goûter, au bord des lèvres, l'âme! »
Edmond de Rostand , Cyrano de Bergerac

♔ After a lifelong struggle to give England an heir, Henry’s glorious successor was not a son, but a daughter. Elizabeth I, daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, came to the throne in 1558, and ruled England for 45 years. She was the last of the great Tudor dynasty, a bright star who dazzled both the nation, and the world. And the achievement of Gloriana, the great Queen of England, still lives on to this day.

  • "I do assure you, there is no Prince that loves his subjects better. There is no jewel, be it of so rich a price, which I place before this jewel; I mean your love. And though you may have many mightier and wiser Princes sitting in this seat, yet you never had, nor shall have, any that will love you better.”

Imagine you were dying. Image you were afraid and a long way from home in terrible pain. Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse, you looked up, and saw the face of the devil himself.
