Mary, Queen of Scots
“In my end is my beginning.”
“[Written in her death cell:] Keep us, oh God, from smallness. Let us be large in thought, in word and in deed. Let us have done with complaint and leave off self-seeking. May we put away all pretense and meet each other with pity and without prejudice. May we never be hasty in Judgment of others. Make us always generous. Let us take time to be calm and gentle. Teach us to put into action our better impulses and to walk unafraid. Grant that we may realize that the little things of life are those which create our differences and that in the big things of life, we are as one under God. And, O Lord, let us never forget to be kind. Amen.”
Mary, Queen of Scots, Scottish queen regnant
(1542 - 1587)
Also known as Mary Stuart and Mary I of Scotland.
