Whatever comes,” she said, “cannot alter one thing. 

If I am a princess in rags and tatters, I can be a princess inside. 

It would be easy to be a princess if I were dressed in cloth of gold,

 but it is a great deal more of a triumph to be one all the time when no one knows it.

 Frances Hodgson Burnettfrom A Little Princess 

Repose, 1900. John White Alexander
