Continuing with the A to Z challenge, when I came across this Victorian era trade card, I thought I had to have it. It’s entitled “Queen Victoria at Home – Balmoral Castle” and was one of a series of six from Clark’s Spool Thread. (The US entry in the series was Mrs. Grover Cleveland.) I didn’t make this a Wednesday Whimsy because I don’t think of “whimsy” when thinking of this Queen, do you?
Here are a few quotes from Her Majesty:
The important thing is not what they think of me, but what I think of them.
Great events make me quiet and calm; it is only trifles that irritate my nerves.
I feel sure that no girl would go to the altar if she knew all. (Veronica sez: I think that one has been pretty well disproven LOL.)
We are not interested in the possibilities of defeat. They do not exist.
