Over the course of almost seventy years on the throne, the stalwart Queen Elizabeth has acquired her fair share of wisdom, and this pocket-size collection of "inspirational quotes and wise words"
offers up dozens of royal reflections. From her thoughts about occupation ("Work is the rent you pay for the room you occupy on earth"
) and history ("We can make sense of the future, if we understand the lessons of the past"
) to more personal perspectives on marriage ("It's the secret of a happy marriage to have different interests"
), family ("family does not necessarily mean blood relatives, but often a description of a community"
), and loss ("grief is the price we pay for love"
), Pocket Wisdom: The Queen
is a right royal source of encouragement and advice. (KG)
