LADIES
[ Also see Gentlemen Women ]

It is good manners, not rank, wealth, or beauty, that constitute the real lay.
      - Roger Ascham

No lady is ever a gentleman.
      - James Branch Cabell

To be gentle is the test of a lady.
      - Owen Felltham (Feltham)

It is easier to make a lady of a peasant-girl than a peasant-girl of a lady.
      - Johann Gottfried von Herder

A fine lady; by which term I wish to express the result of that perfect education in taste and manner, down to every gesture, which heaven forbid that I, professing to be a poet, should undervalue. It is beautiful, and therefore I welcome it in the name of the author of all beauty. I value it so highly that I would fain see it extend not merely from Belgravia to the tradesman's villa, but thence, as I believe it one day will, to the laborer's hovel and the needlewoman's garret.
      - Charles Kingsley

It is true politeness, gentleness, and love for humanity, that constitute a lady.
      - Annie E. Lancaster

There are many true ladies, and they differ somewhat from society generally. So does a true gentleman, on the same principle of refinement and nobility of character.
      - Maria Jane McIntosh

If the inner life of our fashionable women were known, how few would deserve the title of lady!
      - James Merrick
