Delicacy is the genuine tint of virtue.
Marguerite de Valois
Many things are too delicate to be thought; many more, to be spoken.
An appearance of delicacy is inseparable from sweetness and gentleness of character.
True delicacy, that most beautiful heart-leaf of humanity, exhibits itself most significantly in little things.
Delicacy is to the affections what grace is to the beauty.
Weak men often, from the very principle of their weakness, derive a certain susceptibility, delicacy and taste which render them, in those particulars, much superior to men of stronger and more consistent minds, who laugh at them.
Fulke Greville, 1st Baron Brooke
Delicacy is to the mind what fragrance is to the fruit.
