Cromwell said to the Court: The prisoner is perverting the law, he is clouding what should be transparent to the court, in order to cover up his own wrongdoing!

Sir Thomas More answered to Cromwell: The law is not  a “light” for you or any man to see by. The law is not an instrument of any kind. The law is a causeway upon so long as he keeps to it, a citizen may walk safely!
