The difficult we do at once. The impossible takes a little longer. —Louis Mountbatten

This was Prince Charles' favorite uncle, who was killed by an IRA bomb in 1979. And this quote may have been inspired by the time he spent in India as Viceroy of the British Indian Empire, 1947–1948. Or just by virtue of the fact he had six names to remember, even before his surname. 
I found this quote in a Vanity Fair article about him and liked it immediately. More about him here.
