A wife's charm delights her husband, and her skill puts fat on his bones. Like the sun rising in the heights of the Lord so is the beauty of a good wife in her well-ordered home. Like the shining lamp on the holy lamp stand, so is a beautiful face on a stately figure - Sirach 26:13

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things. - Php 4:8

"The librarian regarded her hostess with interest.  The editor of the San Ireneo Gazette had the indefinable charm of someone who said little but thought much.  Miss Prim had always felt that such people were at a marked advantage.  They never said anything tactless, never spouted nonsense, never had cause to regret their words or justify themselves.  She had always tried to behave like this, tried not to say anything that might hurt other people or herself, but it wasn't easy." - The Awakening of Miss Prim by Natalia Sanmartin Fenollera

"Afternoon Tea" by William Henry Margetson 1861-1940
