Loss

 
Henry VIII
King Henry VIII –
In these last days, I’ve been thinking a great deal about loss.  What loss, your grace, is to man most irrecoverable?
 
Charles Brandon –
His virtue.
 
King Henry VIII –
No, for by his actions he may redeem his virtue.
 
Charles Brandon –
Then, his honor.
 
King Henry VIII –
No, for again he may find the means to recover it, even as a man recovers some fortune he has lost.
 
Charles Brandon –
Then I cannot say, Your Majesty.
 
King Henry VIII –
Time, your grace.  Of all losses, time is the most irrecuperable, for it can never be redeemed.
 
 
Charles Brandon
 
From The Tudors, Season 4 / Episode 10 – “Death of a Monarchy”
