Ambitious! Gloriana


“I will have here but one mistress and no master.”
(Elizabeth to Robert Dudley – apocryphal)

“My Lords, do whatever you wish. As for me, I shall do no otherwise than pleases me.”
(Elizabeth to Parliament)

“A strength to harm is perilous in the hand of an ambitious head.”
(Elizabeth in a letter to Henry Sidney, 1565)

“I am my father’s daughter – I am not afraid of anything!”
(from the movie, Elizabeth – but a worthy quote close to my heart!)
