Famous quotes containing the words building, queen and/or victoria:

    Travelling is the ruin of all happiness! There’s no looking at a building here after seeing Italy.
    Fanny Burney (1752–1840)

    “The king died and then the queen died” is a story. “The king died, and then queen died of grief” is a plot.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)

    Sometimes my wife complains that she’s overwhelmed with work and just can’t take one of the kids, for example, to a piano lesson. I’ll offer to do it for her, and then she’ll say, “No, I’ll do it.” We have to negotiate how much I trespass into that mother role—it’s not given up easily.
    —Anonymous Father. As quoted in Women and Their Fathers, by Victoria Secunda, ch. 3 (1992)
