MAIDENHOOD
[ Also see Chastity Children Daughters Innocence Modesty Mothers Purity Youth ]

Oh, the spells that haunt the trembling tale a bright-eyed maiden tells!
      - Sir Edwin Arnold

The young girl who begins to experience the necessity of loving seeks to hide it; but the desire of pleasing betrays the secret of her heart, and sometimes reveals her hopes.
      - Beauchene

The blushing beauties of a modest maid.
      - John Dryden

A child no more! a maiden now--
  A graceful maiden, with a gentle brow;
    A cheek tinged lightly and a dove-like eye;
      And all hearts bless her as she passes by.
      - Mary Howitt

She had grown, in her unstained seclusion, bright and pure as a first opening lilac, when it spreads its clear leaves to the sweetest dawn of May.
      - James Gates Percival

Let the words of a virgin, though in a good cause, and to as good purpose, be neither violent, many, nor first, nor last; it is less shame for a virgin to be lost in a blushing silence than to be found in a bold eloquence.
      - Francis Quarles

A maiden hath no tongue--but thought.
      - William Shakespeare

A maiden never bold; of spirit so still and quiet that her motion blushed at herself.
      - William Shakespeare

Maids want nothing but husbands; and when they have them they want everything.
      - William Shakespeare

Poor maids have more lovers than husbands.
      - John Webster

Nature has thrown a veil of modest beauty over maidenhood and moss-roses.
      - Nathaniel Parker Willis
