Dainty Quotations

Chefs are nutters. They're all self-obsessed, delicate, dainty, insecure little souls and absolute psychopaths. Every last one of them.
Gordon Ramsay

Tis a dainty thing to command, though twere but a flock of sheep.
Miguel de Cervantes

I'm a girly girl. I'm strong, but I'm very timid. Very dainty.
Lil' Kim

I understand I'm supposed to be feminine and dainty, but I'm not. There are two sides to the coin. People are more impressed with things that I do because they almost treat you as if you're handicapped if you're a woman... people can be impressed that I can play a few chords on the guitar.

Nothing's so dainty sweet as lovely melancholy.
Francis Beaumont
