GIRLHOOD
[ Also see Boyhood Childhood Girls Youth ]

The presence of a young girl is like the presence of a flower; the one gives its perfume to all that approach it, the other her grace to all that surround her.
      - Louis Claude Joseph Desnoyers

She was in the lovely bloom and spring-time of womanhood; at the age when, if ever angels be for God's good purpose enthroned in mortal form, they may be, without impiety, supposed to abide in such as hers.
      - Charles Dickens

The girl of the period sets up to be natural, and is only rude; mistakes insolence for innocence; says everything that comes first to her lips, and thinks she is gay when she is only giddy.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

The blushing beauties of a modest maid.
      - John Dryden

When one is five-and-twenty, one has not chalk-stones at one's finger-ends that the touch of a handsome girl should be entirely indifferent.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross)

We love a girl for very different qualities than understanding. We love her for her beauty, her youth, her mirth, her confidingness, her character, with its faults, caprices and God knows what other inexpressible charms; but we do not love her understanding.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The inward fragrance of a young girl's heart is what crystallizes into love.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

One must always regret that law of growth which renders necessary that kittens should spoil into demure cats, and bright, joyous school-girls develop into the spiritless, crystallized beings denominated young ladies.
      - Abba Goold Woolson
