THE EDITOR

To live content with small means;
to seek elegance rather than luxury,
and refinement rather than fashion;
to be worthy, not respectable,
and wealthy, not, rich;
to listen to stars and birds,
babes and sages, with open heart;
to study hard;
to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently,
await occasions, hurry never;
in a word, to let the spiritual,
unbidden and unconscious,
grow up through the common

– this is my symphony.

William Ellery Channing

  2. Hi Claire,

    I am so glad that I found your page! I enjoy being a gracious woman in my early 30’s and treasure femininity.
    It shocks me of how some women behave! They are wearing designer handbags and pretending to be a lady and in the next moment pushing you out of the way to get a seat on the train.

    I would wish that more and more women would start to appreciate again the gift we have and remember how beautiful it is to be a woman!

    Love from London,
    Phoebe

  6. In this society where women are selling themselves short everyday coz of love of money and impatience to get it the right way, I’m glad I stumbled here where people share my values. Love all the way from Nairobi. xx.
