Queen Elizabeth I

Queen Elizabeth's 'Golden Speech'I do assure you, there is no prince that loves his subjects better. There is no jewel, be it of never so rich a price which I set before this jewel: I mean your love. For I do more esteem it than any treasure or riches, for those we know how to prize; but loyalty, love, and thanks- I account them invaluable... To be a king and wear a crown is more glorious to them that see it than it is a pleasure to them that bear it. And for my part, were it not for concience's sake to discharge the duty that God hath laid upon me, and to maintain His Glory and keep you in safety, in mine own disposition I should be willing to resign the place i hold to any other, and glad to be free of the glory with the labours: for it is not my desire to live nor reign longer than my life and reign shall be for your good. And though you have had and may have many mightier and wiser princes sitting in this seat, yet you never had nor shall have any that love you better.
