happy Victoria day

• The important thing is not what they think of me, but what I think of them.

• Please understand that there is no one depressed in this house; we are not interested in the possibilities of defeat; they do not exist.

• I don't dislike babies, though I think very young ones rather disgusting.

• I would venture to warn against too great intimacy with artists as it is very seductive and a little dangerous.

• Great events make me quiet and calm; it is only trifles that irritate my nerves.

Queen Victoria 1819-1901

No wonder she has an entire holiday named after her!
