lady - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Let not the unwise unseeing hearts of olden times tell you what a lady is, for true feminine beauty is strong, intelligent and bold. A lady loves, a lady protects, a lady nurtures in spirit and in deed. She upholds the truth and is steadfast to duty where that duty matters to others. A lady sees her own value, and in this she values others all the more highly.
A lady reserves her emotions until she can respond rather than react, so that she can bring calmness and love to situations that require such things. In storms she is a mast regardless of the wind, for the measure of her fortitude is equal to any male in history.
A lady, as with a true gentleman, is chivalrous to others and kind. She is strong enough to show her heart, and intelligent enough to remain logical and wise. A lady is independent of spirit, yet loves others enough to let them depend on her and for her to depend on them. For these virtues are what makes our world good, this sense of nurture that extends beyond the boundaries of the self and awakens the heroine within.
A lady has integrity for she holds herself true to both inner truth and the higher power of our creator - to love itself. Her femininity exists in her will to nurture, to bring health and kindness. Beyond this, a lady can be anything her talents and heart lead her towards, for she is the equal of her male counterpart.
In every cold storm a lady will stand firm and fight the good fight, yet when her knight comes she welcomes him because together they are more than the sum of their union.
