Norden: "Though outwardly all froth and fragility, [the Southern belle] is really welded of indestructible steel....When she surrenders her virtue, it is generally for a sound, practical reason, like matrimony, her name in lights on Broadway, or a block of U.S. Steel." Quoted in Southern Folk, Plain and Fancy by John Shelton Reed. Nice!
