Citáty Jakub I.
„Především se naučte znát a milovat Boha, ke kterému jste zavázán dvojím způsobem: nejdříve vás učinil člověkem a pak z vás učinil malého Boha a posadil vás na trůn, abyste vládli druhým lidem.“

Speaking of the Puritans at Hampton Court Conference (16 January 1604)
„I acknowledge the Roman Church to be our mother church, although defiled with some infirmities and corruptions…Let [the Papists] assure themselves, that, as I am a friend of their persons, if they be good subjects, so am I a vowed enemy, and do denounce mortal war to their errors.“
On Roman Catholics, at the opening of parliament in 1604.
„That which concerns the mystery of the King's power is not lawful to be disputed; for that is to wade into the weakness of Princes, and to take away the mystical reverence that belongs unto them that sit in the throne of God.“

„He was so crafty and cunning in petty things, as the circumventing of any great man, the change of a Favourite, &c. insomuch as a very wise man was wont to say that he believed him the wisest fool in Christendom, meaning him wise in small things, but a fool in weighty affairs.“
The Court and Character of King James I, commonly attributed to Anthony Weldon

„The House of Commons is a body without a head. The Members give their opinions in a disorderly manner. At their meetings nothing is heard but cries, shouts, and confusion. I am surprised that my ancestors should ever have permitted such an institution to come into existence. I am a stranger and found it here when I arrived, so that I am obliged to put up with what I cannot get rid of.“
