4. Famous among the famous: "Let them eat _____!"

From Quiz That's What She Said!

Answer: cake

Our dear Queen Marie-Antoinette, famously naive and pathetically ignorant! Okay, to be fair, she might have not actually said those words - in fact, she probably didn't. But history being written by the winners, and the winners in this case being the revolutionaries, it seems that history wants Marie Antoinette to be a git... Thus it came to be told that, genuinely oblivious of the misery in which the French people lived under her husband King Louis XVI, this is all that the very young queen had to say to an advisor who informed their majesties that their people were starving. "They have no more bread? Let them eat cake!".

5. "Everything that we _________ is a shadow cast by that which we do not _________." -Martin Luther King Jr.

7. Select the correct "A" word to complete the following quote: "Never forget what a man says when he is ...." (Henry Ward Beecher)

From Quiz Just Sayin'

Answer: angry

Beecher was both a US Abolitionist and clergyman. He may have had in mind the bible verse that "out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks." Matthew 12:34. Unfortunately, it's often what is said in anger that plumbs the depths of our true feelings. I'm not quite sure how you might recall what someone says when he's alone! Sources:, and King James Bible

8. "A friend is one who has . . . "

From Quiz Are You Gonna Finish That?

9. Johnson's biographer, James Boswell, first met the Doctor on May 16, 1763. Dining at the Mitre a few weeks later as Boswell's guest, Johnson observed that "the noblest prospect that a Scotchman ever sees is ______."

From Quiz Quotes by Dr Johnson

Answer: the high road that leads him to England

One of his fellow guests, the Rev John Ogilvie, had spoken in praise of the "noble wild prospects" of the Scottish landscape. Johnson had a typical anti-Scottish put-down at the ready. Although England and Scotland had been under the same crown for more than a century and a half, full political union was not much more than 50 years old. To many English, the Scots were still fairly foreign, and Johnson's jibe reflects a not uncommon English attitude to the "Scotsman on the make".

From Quiz We have to talk about ...

16. Marie Curie: "Nothing in life is to be feared; it is only to be __________."

From Quiz That's What She Said!

Answer: understood

Born Marie Sklodowska, Polish scientist Marie Curie worked on radioactivity her entire life with her husband, Frenchman Pierre Curie. After Henri Becquerel's discovery of radioactivity from uranium in 1896, she decided to explore it further and worked on pitchblende, a kind of uranium ore. She noticed that it was four times as radioactive as uranium alone, and deduced that something else in it must have been much more radioactive. This is how she discovered radium in 1898, shortly after discovering polonium. Her work on radioactivity was important enough to have earned her two Nobel prizes (in physics and chemistry) in a field where women had to face contempt and ridicule everywhere they tried to go. In the first 100 years of the awards, only one other person won two Nobel prizes in two different fields. Certainly one of the most important scientific minds in history, she really did not fear anything. Her lifelong exposure to radiation led to her death in 1934. Not before she had changed the world, though...

From Quiz That's not fair!

Answer: polite

Winston Churchill said this in comment on the overly formal and diplomatic tone of Britain's declaration of war against Japan on December 8, 1941. In full, the quote read "Some people did not like this ceremonial style. But after all when you have to kill a man it costs nothing to be polite."

26. Elizabeth I: "I know I have the body but of a weak and feeble woman; but I have the heart and stomach of a ________."

From Quiz That's What She Said!

Answer: king

Yup! Not the heart of a queen! Queen Elizabeth Tudor spent her whole (long) reign making sure that no one would think her weak because of her gender. A sound success, to be sure. These words she uttered in her "Speech to the Troops at Tilbury", in preparation for an expected attack of the Spanish Armada. The year was 1588 - 30 years into her reign. Philip II, King of Spain, had been allowed by Pope Sixtus V to launch a crusade against Protestant England. His Armada of 151 ships had set sail from Lisbon and already fought in the Battle of Gravelines a few days before the speech. After the battle, the fleet meant to go rest on the Irish shore for a few days, but the winds carried it further east instead. Anticipating an attack, Elizabeth went to encourage her troops in Tilbury, giving her most famous speech. The Spanish Armada, already weakened by starvation and illness, was decimated in the following weeks. They ultimately went back to Spain with less than half of their fleet and troops. With a bit of luck, England had become the greatest naval power of the world for more than three centuries.

29. Which "C" word accurately completes the following saying: "... is easy, art is difficult." (Destouches)

From Quiz Just Sayin'

Answer: Criticizing

Perhaps the best advice when someone finds fault: "Don't be distracted by criticism. Remember - the only taste of success some people have is when they take a bite out of you." (Zig Ziglar, motivational speaker.) Andre Cardinal Destouches (1672-1749) was a French composer, appointed by Louis XIV as Director of the Acadamie Royale de Musique. He is best known for the opera-ballet 'Les Elemens.' Sources: Destouches -; Ziglar -

30. "People are just as happy . . ."

From Quiz Are You Gonna Finish That?

Answer: ". . . as they make up their minds to be."

Abraham Lincoln was very stressed out. You could see it on his face in pictures taken over time. Besides the stresses of his job, he endured the deaths of two children. Later, after his own death, a third child also died at an early age.
