definition of a lady
Manners, attitudes, appropriate dress and social mores have changed so dramatically that the definition of being a lady has left everyone confused.
A lady by today's definition knows that educating herself in every way possible, from higher education to the common sense manners, empowers her to become a woman of accomplishment and poise. She knows it is not her dress size or the money she possess that brings her satisfaction in life.
A lady knows that beauty and wealth can be fleeting, but her inner character is the measure by which others will ultimately judge her as a person.
Her courtesies, the high esteem in which she holds herself and others, and her sincere words of praise and thoughtfulness will reflect her strong values and place her ahead in the minds and hearts of those who know her. Being thought of as a "lady" may be the one of the highest compliments a woman can receive in her life.
