Jean Simmons Quotes:

Ann Seymour: Do not attempt to confuse me by using words beyond my understanding.
Young Bess: I am sorry, madame, but they are difficult to avoid.


Thomas Seymour: If you were queen of England, what would you do, eh? Would you give your admiral the opportunity to do great deeds?
Young Bess: I'd give him the opportunities he never dared to dream about. I'd send him around the globe as the Portuguese do. I'd send him to the New World to let the Spaniards know that they are no longer masters of it.
Thomas Seymour: That won't be easy. We're a small country, Bess.
Young Bess: That can be remedied, Tom. It CAN be remedied!


Bruce Cameron: What are you planning to be when you grow up, an old maid?
Anne Leeds: Somebody told you.
