New Zealand Woman’s Weekly - - COVER STORY -

Mem­o­rable quotes from the Queen:

“There­fore, I am sure that this, my corona­tion, is not the sym­bol of a power and a splen­dour that are gone, but a dec­la­ra­tion of our hopes for the fu­ture, and for the years I may, by God’s grace and mercy, be given to reign and serve as your Queen.”

“Let us not take our­selves too se­ri­ously. None of us has a mo­nop­oly on wis­dom.”

“When life seems hard, the coura­geous do not lie down and ac­cept de­feat; in­stead they are all the more de­ter­mined to strug­gle for a bet­ter fu­ture.”

“Fam­i­lies, friends and com­mu­ni­ties of­ten find a source of courage ris­ing up from within. In­deed, sadly, it seems that it is tragedy that of­ten draws out the most and best from the hu­man spirit.”

“It is all to do with the train­ing; you can do a lot if you’re prop­erly trained.”

“Like all the best fam­i­lies, we have our share of ec­cen­tric­i­ties, of im­petu­ous and way­ward young­sters and of fam­ily dis­agree­ments.”

To a woman whose cell phone rang dur­ing a meet­ing – “You’d bet­ter an­swer that. It could be some­one im­por­tant.”
