From Chicken Soup for the Soul Daily Inspirations for Women

June 11

I was once asked by the Americans to write how, when I die, I want to be remembered.

Iwas What really matters is that I do bring happiness to people, for the simple reason that my heroines are the sweet, loving, genuine women who were first portrayed by Shakespeare in Romeo and Juliet and whose example has been copied by all classical authors.

It is they who evoke in a man the real love that is both spiritual and physical, and it is the woman in a marriage who stands for Morality, Compassion, Sympathy and Love.

Dame Barbara Cartland
