One of my Twitter followers posted a status that said “Heavy is the head that wears the crown.” I did not necessarily know what this phrase meant at the time that I retweeted it; I just knew that I liked the wording. I decided to do a bit or research so that I would be able to better understand this phrase.
I found that the original phrase is “Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown” and can be found in Part II of William Shakespeare‘s play Henry IV. The phrase is used to describe the responsibilities and worry that accompanies those who have a lot of power and prestige.
My last name is not QUEENan by accident.
