“Being female is a matter of birth, being a woman is a matter of age, but being a lady is a matter of choice.”
I often have conversations with some of my friends about the meaning of a true lady and a true gentleman. Is that just something archaic that belongs to the past, or is it possible to maintain ladylike qualities in the modern times?
Times change, and people change, and these are surely not innocent times. But I can’t help myself and think how today we feel strange when someone around us is not vulgar, when he or she is polite and well-mannered.
Are ladies and gentlemen an extinct species? I truly hope they are not – it would be a sad world to live in!
