Even little things have their peculiar grace.
  [Lat., Inest sua gratia parvis.]
      - Proverb

The most divine light only shineth on those minds which are purged from all worldly dross and human uncleanliness.
      - Sir Walter Raleigh (1)

Gracefulness cannot subsist without ease; delicacy is not debility; nor must a woman be sick in order to please. Infirmity, and sickness may excite our pity, but desire and pleasure require the bloom and vigor of health.
      - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Grace is the beauty of form under the influence of freedom.
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller

As prodigal of all dear grace as Nature was in making graces dear.
      - William Shakespeare

For several virtues
  Have I lik'd several women; never any
    With so full soul, but some defect in her
      Did quarrel with the noblest grace she ow'd,
        And put it to the foil.
      - William Shakespeare

Know you not, master, to some kind of men their graces serve them but as enemies? No more do yours; your virtues, gentle master, are sanctified and holy traitors to you. Oh, what a world is this, when what is comely envenoms him that bears it!
      - William Shakespeare

Natural graces, that extinguish art.
      - William Shakespeare

Oh, mickle is the powerful grace that lies in plants, herbs, stones and their qualities!
      - William Shakespeare

That word "grace" in. an ungracious mouth is but profane.
      - William Shakespeare

Till all grace be in one woman, one woman shall not come in my grace.
      - William Shakespeare

To some kind of men their graces serve them but as enemies.
      - William Shakespeare

When once our grace we have forgot, Nothing goes right.
      - William Shakespeare

O, then, what graces in my love do dwell
  That he hath turned a heaven unto a hell!
      - William Shakespeare,
        A Midsummer Night's Dream
         (Hermia at I, i)

Here comes one with a paper: God give him grace to groan!
      - William Shakespeare, Love's Labor's Lost
         (Berowne at IV, iii)

Hail to thee, lady! and the grace of heaven,
  Before, behind thee, and on every hand,
    Enwheel thee round!
      - William Shakespeare,
        Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Cassio at II, i)

Full many a lady
  I have eyed with best regard, and many a time
    Th' harmony of their tongues hath into bondage
      Brought my too diligent ear; for several virtues
        Have I liked several women; never any
          With so full soul but some defect in her
            Did quarrel with the noblest grace she owed,
              And put it to the foil.
      - William Shakespeare, The Tempest
         (Ferdinand at III, i)

He does it with a better grace, but I do it more natural.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Andrew at II, iii)

The three black graces, Law, Physic, and Divinity.
      - Horace Smith and James Smith,
        Punch's Holiday

With countenance demure, and modest grace.
      - Edmund Spenser

The grace of the spirit comes only from heaven, and lights up the whole bodily presence.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Beauty, devoid of grace, is a mere hook without the bait.
      - Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord

Every degree of recession from the state of grace Christ first put us in is a recession from our hopes.
      - Jeremy Taylor

In effective womanly beauty form is more than face, and manner more than either.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray

Grace is in a great measure a natural gift; elegance implies cultivation; or something of more artificial character. A rustic, uneducated girl may be graceful, but an elegant woman must be accomplished and well trained. It is the same with things as with persons; we talk of a graceful tree, but of an elegant house or other building. Animals may be graceful, but they cannot be elegant. The movements of a kitten or a young fawn are full of grace; but to call them "elegant" animals would be absurd.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately
