Queen Victoria received the stunning Kohinoor Diamond as a gift from a maharajah when he was a boy. Later as a grown man this maharajah visited Queen Victoria again and asked for the stone. Taking the diamond and kneeling, the maharajah gave it to the Queen again, saying, "Your Majesty, I gave you this jewel when I was a child, too young to know what I was doing. I want to give it to you again in the fullness of my strength, with all my heart and affection and gratitude, now and forever, fully realizing all that I do."

When first married, I wasn't adept in the kitchen, and my husband wasn't fond of household maintenance. I was, therefore, shocked when I heard him using the electric sander in the basement one evening. Thrilled he was finally getting to some chores, I tiptoed downstairs to sneak a peek at what he was doing. There I found him industriously sanding off the burnt bottoms of the chocolate chip cookies I had just made. - Laura Siitari
