Famous quotes containing the words memorial and/or lecture:

    When I received this [coronation] ring I solemnly bound myself in marriage to the realm; and it will be quite sufficient for the memorial of my name and for my glory, if, when I die, an inscription be engraved on a marble tomb, saying, “Here lieth Elizabeth, which reigned a virgin, and died a virgin.”
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)

    I find quite as much material for a lecture in those points wherein I have failed, as in those wherein I have been moderately successful.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
