      - Elizabeth I

Virginity is the ideal of those who want to deflower.
      - Karl Kraus

      - Alphonse de Lamartine

Maiden, when such a soul as thine is born, the morning stars their ancient music make.
      - James Russell Lowell

Fasting maids whose minds are dedicate to nothing temporal.
      - William Shakespeare

      - William Shakespeare
