Over the nearly 70 years that she ruled Great Britain, Queen Elizabeth shared many words of wisdom. Here are some of the most inspiring.
“It’s worth remembering that it is often the small steps, not the giant leaps, that bring about the most lasting change.”
“Let us not take ourselves too seriously. None of us has a monopoly on wisdom.”
“Each day is a new beginning, I know that the only way to live my life is to try to do what is right, to take the long view, to give of my best in all that the day brings, and to put my trust in God.”
“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”
“It has always been easy to hate and destroy. To build and to cherish is much more difficult.”
