Daß Clémence de Bourges hat sterben müssen in ihrem Aufgang. Sie, die ohne gleichen war; unter den Instrumenten, die sie wie keine zu spielen verstand, das schönste, selber im mindesten Klang ihrer Stimme unvergeßlich gespielt. Ihr Mädchentum war von so hoher Entschlossenheit, daß eine flutende Liebende diesem aufkommenden Herzen das Buch Sonette zueignen konnte, darin jeder Vers ungestillt war. Louise Labbé fürchtete nicht, dieses Kind zu erschrecken mit der Leidenslänge der Liebe. Sie zeigte ihr das nächtliche Steigen der Sehnsucht; sie versprach ihr den Schmerz wie einen größeren Weltraum; und sie ahnte, daß sie mit ihrem erfahrenen Weh hinter dem dunkel erwarteten zurückblieb, von dem diese Jünglingin schön war.
Rainer Maria Rilke, Die Aufzeichnungen des Malte Laurids Brigge. Kap. 67

Página 18 - Try me, good king, but let me have a lawful trial, and let not my sworn enemies sit as my accusers and judges; yea, let me receive an open trial, for my truth shall fear no open shame; then shall you see either mine innocence cleared, your suspicion and conscience satisfied, the Ignominy and slander of the world stopped, or my guilt openly declared.

Whereas you send unto me (willing me to confess a truth, and so obtain your favour) by such an one, whom you know to be mine ancient professed enemy. I no sooner received this message by him, than I rightly conceived your meaning; and if, as you say, confessing a truth, indeed, may procure my safety, I shall with all willingness and duty perform your command.
