On Woman

   A woman who looks much in the glass spins but little.

   The handsomest woman can only give what she has.

   A foolish woman is clamorous; she is simple and knoweth 
                                               Prov. 9:13

   One hair of a woman draws more than a bell-rope.

   She is noblest, being good.

   Whatever may be the customs and laws of a country, the women 
     of it decide the morals.

   Women are the poetry of the world.

   Every wise woman buildeth her house; but the foolish plucketh 
     it down with her own hands.
                                                      Prov. 14:1  

   A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband; but she that doeth 
     shamefully is as rottenness to the bones.
                                                      Prov. 12:4

   A virtuous woman, though ugly, is the ornament of the house.
     She doeth little kindnesses which most leave undone or 
                                                J. R. Lowell

   Though men may fall in love with girls at play, there is 
     nothing to make them stand to their love like seeing them at 

   Some men prefer long office hours because it shortens their 
     hours at home.

   Women have more strength in their looks than we have in our 
     laws, and more power in their tears than we have in our 

   The man after a a woman's own heart may not want it.

   A virtuous woman is a splendid prize;
   A bad --- the greatest curse beneath the skies.

   A handsome woman is soon dressed.

   How few are lovely that are made for love!
   Do you, my fair, endeavour to possess
   An elegance of mind as well as dress?


   When female cheeks refuse to glow, 
   Farewell to virtue here below;
   Maintain your modesty and station, 
   So women shall preserve the nation.


   Kind words and few are a woman's ornament.

   Nothing makes a woman more esteemed by the opposite sex than 

   The world waits for love --- the vigilance of love, the service 
     of love, the sacrifice of love.

   Let no man value at little price a virtuous woman's counsel.

   She who does not make her family comfortable will herself never 
     be happy at home, and she who is not happy at home will 
     never be happy anywhere.

   'Tis virtue that makes them most admired; 
     'Tis modesty that makes them seem divine.

   Women are never so amiable as when they are useful.

   The foundation of domestic happiness is faith in the virtue of 
                                              W. S. Landor

   A cross-grained woman and a snappish dog take care of the 

   Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above 
   rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, 
   so that he shall have no need of spoil.  She will do him 
   good and not evil all the days of her life.  She seeketh 
   wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.  She 
   is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar. 
   She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to 
   her household, and a portion to her maidens.  She 
   considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands 
   she planteth a vineyard.  She girdeth her loins with 
   strength, and strengtheneth her arms.  She perceiveth that 
   her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. 
   She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold 
   the distaff. She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, 
   she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.  She is not 
   afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are 
   clothed with scarlet.  She maketh herself coverings of 
   tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.  Her husband is 
   known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the 
   land. She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and 
   delivereth girdles unto the merchant. Strength and honour 
   are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
   She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law 
   of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her 
   household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her 
   children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and 
   he praiseth her. 
                                                    Prov 31:10-28

   Charm is deceitful and beauty passing, but a woman who fears the 
   Lord, she shall be praised.
                                                    Prov 31:30
