CHARLOTTE MARY YONGE
English novelist
(1823 - 1901)

A woman without a degree of decency and delicacy is unsexed.
      - [Decency]

If the man be really the weaker vessel, and the rule is necessarily in the wife's hands, how is it then to be? To tell the truth, I believe that the really loving, good wife never finds it out. She keeps the glamor of love and loyalty between herself and her husband, and so infuses herself into him that the weakness never becomes apparent either to her or to him or to most lookers-on.
      - [Wedlock]

Refinement is just as much a Christian grace in a man as in a woman; but he is not such a hateful, unsexed creature without it as a woman is.
      - [Refinement]

Refinement is the delicate aroma of Christianity.
      - [Refinement]

That the women of the Old Testament were dressed with oriental richness there is no doubt, nor are they censured for so arraying themselves.
      - [Dress]
