I would rather be a beggar and single than a queen and married.
A clear and innocent conscience fears nothing.
I do not want a husband who honours me as a queen, if he does not love me as a woman.
I know I have the body of a weak and feeble woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a king of England too.
Fear not, we are of the nature of the lion, and cannot descend to the destruction of mice and such small beasts.
