Being The Child of Such a Father

None of you can ever be proud
enough of being the child of such a Father
who has not his equal in this world
so great, so good, so faultless.
Try, all of you, to follow in his footsteps
and don’t be discouraged,
for to be really in everything like him none of you,
I am sure, will ever be.
Try, therefore, to be like him in some points,
and you will have acquired a great deal.
Queen Victoria of England
