Quote of the Day

This quote from Andrew Marr’s biography of Queen Elizabeth II is inspirational to me, both as an admirer of Her Majesty, and as a homeschooling mother:

It is not true, then, to say the Queen was badly educated. She was just differently educated. She was, and is, very fast at absorbing information and always had remarkable powers of concentration. From early on, she became shrewd at sizing up people, and good at recalling names and faces. Although going to a proper school might have helped her understand non-royal life, the lack of a formal education did not cripple her intellectually. The Real Elizabeth by Andrew Marr
