   Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations.  1989.
 
 
NUMBER:838
AUTHOR:Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882–1945)
QUOTATION:Those of you who have been there [Haiti] know it is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. It has everything. It has everything above the ground, and everything under the ground…. It is an amazing place. I strongly recommend that whenever you get a chance, if you haven’t been there, that you go to Haiti. I think it was a certain Queen of England who said that after her death “Calais” would be found written on her heart. When I die, I think that “Haiti” is going to be written on my heart.
ATTRIBUTION:President FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT, toast to the President of Haiti, White House dinner, October 14, 1943.—The Public Papers and Addresses of Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1943, p. 430 (1950).

  It was Queen Mary I of England who said, “When I am dead and opened, you shall find Calais laying in my heart.”—John Foxe, The Acts and Monuments of John Foxe, ed. Stephen Reed Cattley, vol. 8, book 12, p. 625 (1839). During her reign, England had lost Calais to the French.
