ATTRACTIVENESS

To make the cunning artless, tame the rude, subdue the haughty, shake the undaunted soul; yea, put a bridle in the lion's mouth, and lead him forth as a domestic cur,--these are the triumphs of all-powerful beauty.
      - Joanna Baillie

On the attraction between man and woman society is based; but its refined is greater than its gross force, and its weight is like the gravitation of the globe.
      - Cyrus Augustus Bartol

Those who are formed to win general admiration are seldom calculated to bestow individual happiness.
      - Lady Marguerite Blessington, Countess of Blessington

A pretty, silly, self-conceited woman will very often be far more courted, and seemingly far more liked and admired, than a woman of infinitely higher charms. All the while the men do not like her a tenth part as well.
      - Charles Buxton

The first duty of a woman is to be pretty.
      - Madame Delphine Gay de Girardin

A woman's natural quality is to attract, and having attracted to enchain; and how influential she may be for good or evil, the history of every age makes clear.
      - Mrs. Hugh R. Haweis

No woman can be handsome by the force of features alone, any more than she can be witty only by the help of speech.
      - Thomas Hughes

The poetic element lying hidden in most women is the source of their magnetic attraction.
      - Victor Hugo

The more sensible a woman is, supposing her not to be masculine, the more attractive she is in her proportionate power to entertain.
      - Leigh Hunt (James Henry Leigh Hunt)

There are other things besides beauty with which to captivate the hearts of men. The Italians have a saying: "Fair is not fair, but that which pleaseth."
      - Ninon de L'Enclos (real name Anne L'Enclos)

Women and flowers are made to beloved for their beauty and sweetness, rather than themselves to love.
      - Ninon de L'Enclos (real name Anne L'Enclos)

I hold it to be the moral duty of women to make themselves beautiful in all lawful ways.
      - E. Lynn Linton

Rarity gives a charm: thus early fruits are most esteemed; thus winter roses obtain a higher price; thus coyness sets off an extravagant mistress: a door ever open attracts no young suitor.
      - Martial (Marcus Valerius Martialis)

She carried about her an indefinable air of having been used to love, or admiration probably, of men as well as women, which the most exquisitely modest women will sometimes wear, and which is unmistakable as it is alluring to the eye.
      - Elizabeth Stuart Phelps (Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward)

That hook of wiving, fairness which strikes the eye.
      - William Shakespeare

Our poor eyes were so enriched as to behold, and our low hearts so exalted as to love, a maid who is such, that as the greatest thing the world can show is her beauty, so the least thing that may be praised in her is her beauty.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

Nothing under heaven so strongly doth allure the sense of man, and all his mind possess, as beauty's love.
      - Edmund Spenser
