A lady walks in quiet confidence. Never striving, chasing or clamoring for attention & because of this, she gets it. The attributes of a great lady may still be found in the rule of the four S's: Sincerity, Simplicity, Sympathy and Serenity.
Southern Lady - A compliment is a "gift" from the giver. You would never open a tangible "gift" and then proceed to tell the gift-giver everything you found wrong with it. Never thought of a compliment in this way.
