Cards and Quotes: 6 of Hearts

For today's Cards and Quotes I am using a deck of playing cards called The Doomed Queens, created by Kris Waldherr and published by U.S. Games Systems. In this deck, the Six of Hearts features Mary Stuart, aka Mary, Queen of Scots.

“To be kind to all, to like many and love a few,
to be needed and wanted by those we love,
is certainly the nearest we can come to happiness.”
~ Mary Stuart (Scottish Queen, 1542-1587)


  1. educational deck, this! assuming it is historically accurate that is :]

    1. Hi Bonkers! The deck is based on a book by Kris Waldherr: Doomed Queens: Royal Women Who Met Bad Ends, From Cleopatra to Princess Di (Three Rivers Press). My understanding is that the book was thoroughly researched. :)

  2. Interesting deck and the perfect quote!
