Being pregnant is an occupational hazard of being a wife.
Being married gives one one's position like nothing else can.
I feel sure that no girl would go to the altar if she knew all.
A marriage is no amusement but a solemn act, and generally a sad one.
An ugly baby is a very nasty object - and the prettiest is frightful.
We are not interested in the possibilities of defeat. They do not exist.
I don't dislike babies, though I think very young ones rather disgusting.
The important thing is not what they think of me, but what I think of them.
Great events make me quiet and calm; it is only trifles that irritate my nerves.
Queen Victoria in in a letter to King Leopold of Belgium, April 4, 1848
