“Do you know like we were saying? About the Earth revolving? It’s like when you’re a kid. The first time they tell you that the world’s turning and you just can’t quite believe it because everything looks like it’s standing still. I can feel it. The turn of the Earth. The ground beneath our feet is spinning at a thousand miles an hour. And the entire planet is hurtling around the sun at sixty-seven thousand miles an hour and I can feel it. We’re falling through space, you and me. Clinging to the skin of this tiny little world and if we let go… That’s who I am. Now forget me, Rose Tyler. Go home.”


“At the 1541 banquet, which followed the former Queen’s obeisance to the present incumbent, it was noted that the Lady Anne looked as happily unconcerned ‘as if there had been nothing between them’ (herself and the king). Anne of Cleves, aged 25, ended the evening dancing with Queen Katherine Howard, aged 19, while the King stumped off to bed, because his leg was hurting him. This arrangement was evidently a great success. The next day all parties had dinner together again with much 'conversation, amusement and mirth’, as before the evening ended with the young ladies dancing together after the king retired." ~ Antonia Fraser "The SIx Wives of Henry
