Lady Quotes


Chastity and grace... Traditional virtues that have been lost. They comprise the educational ideology of Ousou Academy. They're priorities that are not valued in boys, only in girls. After having them instilled in us, we're shipped out as a brand-name product — "refined, sheltered maidens" — and purchased by men who seek a classic piece of furniture called "a good wife and mother..." for a formality known as marriage. Students in this school are all components that will be processed into a piece of artwork called the "lady."

— All young ladies are accomplished! They sing, they draw, they dance, speak French and German, cover screens, and I know not what!
— Not half a dozen would satisfy my notion of accomplished woman.
— Certainly! No woman can be esteemed accomplished, who does not also possess a certain something in her air, in the manner of walking, in the tone of her voice, her address and expressions. And to this she must yet add something more substantial, in the improvement of her mind by extensive reading.
— I'm no longer surprised at you knowing only six accomplished women. I wonder at your knowing any.
