"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. "

I think it is too easy to forget how amazing we are as women and princesses; especially where few of us are clothed in gold :)
