Quotes from the Movie Elizabeth

Tonight I think I die.

Elizabeth

The marriage of a Queen, Excellency, is born of politics, not childish passion.

Elizabeth

I do not like wars. They have uncertain outcomes.

Elizabeth

I have no desire to make windows into men's souls.

Elizabeth

Aye, but marry who, your grace? Would you give me some suggestion? For some say France and others Spain, and some cannot abide foreigners at all. So I am not sure how best to please you unless I married one of each.

Elizabeth

I do not think you should lecture me on that my lord, since you yourself have been twice divorced. And are now upon your third wife.

Elizabeth

Each of you must vote according to your conscience. But remember this. In your hands, upon this moment, lies the future happiness of my people, and the peace of this realm. Let that be upon your conscience also.

Sir Francis Walsingham

Tell me, what is God to you? Has he abandoned you? Is he such a worldly god that he must play at politics in the filth of conspiracy? Is he not divine? Tell me the truth, as if you were face to face with him now. I'm a patient man, Father.

Sir Francis Walsingham

Remember who you are. Do not be afraid of them.

My lord, what will a man not do for love?

Elizabeth is a witch... a witch... and her servant is the devil!

Go back to England, and take this to your Queen. Hm? English blood on French colors. Send him back to his Queen, and make sure he remains alive. Tell that bastard Queen not to send children to fight Mary of Guise!
