Quote by Queen Elizabeth II
To all those who have suffered as a consequence of our troubled past I extend my sincere thoughts and deep sympathy. With the benefit of historical hindsight we can all see things which we would wish had been done differently or not at all.
This quote acknowledges the pain and suffering endured by individuals due to the events of the past.

It emphasizes the importance of learning from the past to prevent similar mistakes or injustices from reoccurring in the future.
Why are not more gems from our great authors scattered over the country? Great books are not in everybody's reach; and though it is better to know them thoroughly than to know them only here and there, yet it is a good work to give a little to those who have not the time nor means to get more.
