    I am your anointed Queen. I will never be by violence constrained to do anything. I thank God I am endued with such qualities that if I were turned out of the Realm in my petticoat I were able to live in any place in Christendom.
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)

    The daughter of debate, that eke discord doth sow,
    Shall reap no gain where former rule hath taught still peace to
    grow.
    No foreign banished wight shall anchor in this port;
    Our realm it brooks no stranger’s force, let them elsewhere resort.
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)

An economy entirely geared to war ... but there is not much war ... hardly any fighting ... yet every man a soldier from birth till death ... Men ... all men for fighting ... but no war, no wars to fight ... what is it, what does it mean?”
