Wisdom from the gentiles: Queen Elizabeth II

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

Good memories are our second chance at happiness.

Work is the rent you pay for the room you occupy on earth.

There are long periods when life seems a small, dull round, a petty business with no point, and then suddenly we are caught up in some great event which gives us a glimpse of the solid and durable foundations of our existence.

It's all to do with the training: you can do a lot if you're properly trained.

[To the suggestion that Great Britain might someday want a Republic:] We'll go quietly.

I have no idea if these are really her words or those of writers (some goes for any leader or rich person), but being spoken by her  they are most pithy.
