The Wit and Wisdom of Louisa May Alcott

From Chapter 28 of Little Women:
[Meg March] knew her husbands income, and she loved to feel that he trusted her, not only with his happiness, but what some men seem to value more--his money.
From Chapter 37:
[Amy March] knew she looked well, she loved to dance, she felt that her foot was on her native heath in a ballroom, and enjoyed the delightful sense of power which comes when young girls first descovver the new and lovely kingdom they are born to rule by virtue of beauty, youth, and womanhood.
