Famous quotes containing the word queen:

    Queen Jane was in labor
    Six weeks and some more;
    The women grew wearied,
    And the midwife gave o’er.
    —Unknown. The Death of Queen Jane (l. 1–4)

    In the early forties and fifties almost everybody “had about enough to live on,” and young ladies dressed well on a hundred dollars a year. The daughters of the richest man in Boston were dressed with scrupulous plainness, and the wife and mother owned one brocade, which did service for several years. Display was considered vulgar. Now, alas! only Queen Victoria dares to go shabby.
    M. E. W. Sherwood (1826–1903)

    The Queen had one way of settling all difficulties, great or small. “Off with his head!” she said without even looking around.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)
