  • First try to be a lady!
    • In answer to six-year-old Princess (and future Queen) Elizabeth when the girl responded to a hospital patient calling her "young lady" by retorting, "I'm not a Lady, I'm a Princess!"
  • I am not dead yet!
    • Said on her deathbed to her physician, who turned his back on her to leave the room instead of backing out through the doorway. The physician, taking the hint, promptly turned and bowed and backed out of the room.
  • There's only one thing I never did and wish I had done: climbed over a fence.
