Maid
 
The spotless maid is like the blooming rose
Which on its native stem unsullied grows.
            —Ariosto
  1
Maidens, like moths, are ever caught by glare,
And Mammon wins his way where seraphs might despair.
            —Lord Byron
  2
Maids are like contentment in this life,
Which all the world have sought, but none enjoy’d.
            —Sir John Davies
  3
  A maiden is like a half-blown damask rose, fair as a dream and full of the sweet fragrance of the purity of dawning womanhood.
            —Annie E. Lancaster
