Esteemed Readers, I have discovered a rather curious note regarding the qualities of a real lady, There were prepared by Madame de Prigny & published in Mercure Galant in 1693 under the name “Characters of Women of Our Century”. She has divided female characters & virtues.
The most common characters include Coquette, Hypocrite, Spiritual, Thrifty, Jealous, Licentious. The most necessary virtues are: Modesty, Compassion, Wisdom, Principles, Activity, Calmness.
May this SMS of the Past be a good one to ponder upon in our uneasy times. Our globalized epoch possesses so many trifles & misses so many important things!
Vive le Roy! 🙂
