WHAT SHE SAID…Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother

“Wouldn’t it be terrible if you’d spent all your life doing everything you were supposed to do, didn’t drink, didn’t smoke, didn’t eat things, took lots of exercise, and suddenly, one day, you were run over by a big red bus and, as the wheels were crunching into you, you’d say, “Oh my God, I could have got so drunk last night”. That’s the way you should live your life, as if tomorrow you’ll be run over by a big red bus.”
Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother
1900-2002
(Quoted by Michael Parker in The Queen Mother: The Official Biography )
