Statement to Pomponne de Bellievre, as told to Cardinal de Retz in 1651; [http://www.gutenberg.org/files/3846/3846.txt Memoirs of Cardinal de Retz (1717)] Variant: One never rises so high as when one does not know where one is going.

„We declared our intentions to preserve monarchy, and they still are so, unless necessity enforce an alteration.“

— Oliver Cromwell
Context: We declared our intentions to preserve monarchy, and they still are so, unless necessity enforce an alteration. It’s granted the king has broken his trust, yet you are fearful to declare you will make no further addresses... look on the people you represent, and break not your trust, and expose not the honest party of your kingdom, who have bled for you, and suffer not misery to fall upon them for want of courage and resolution in you, else the honest people may take such courses as nature dictates to them. Speech in the Commons during the debate which preceded the "Vote of No Addresses" (January 1648) as recorded in the diary of John Boys of Kent

„It's a blessed thing to die daily.“

— Oliver Cromwell
Context: It's a blessed thing to die daily. For what is there in this world to be accounted of! The best men according to the flesh, and things, are lighter than vanity. I find this only good, to love the Lord and his poor despised people, to do for them and to be ready to suffer with them.... and he that is found worthy of this hath obtained great favour from the Lord; and he that is established in this shall ( being conformed to Christ and the rest of the Body) participate in the glory of a resurrection which will answer all. Letter to Sir Thomas Fairfax (7 March 1646)

There is not a man living can say I sought it, no not a man, nor woman, treading upon English ground.“
