„I have often thought that i am the most clever woman that ever lived, and others cannot compare with me…. Although I have heard much about Queen Victoria…I don't think her life was half so interesting and eventful as mine…. she had… really nothing to say about the policy of the country. Now look at me. I have 400,000,000 people dependent on my judgement.“
