Victorian Quotes and Sayings to Daughters

Saturday, March 6th, 2010

From bringing up children, to moral instruction, to advice on finances, the Victorians passed on a wealth of advice. For daughters, sayings and quotes were often repeated, intended to soothe, console and advise daughters on all aspects of their lives.

These quotes passed on from generation to generation. Many of these quotes and/or metaphors are still used in many households on a regular basis and others are relics of a time and era which has taken its place in the past.

Technically, the Victorian period spans from 1837 to 1901. Others place the Victorian period within the passages of the great reform bills in 1832 and 1867. The period was marked by great change, chaos, prosperity for some with poverty and misery for others. It was a time of great inventiveness but also a time of great upheaval. Advice and quotes were always at hand, whether one belonged in the upper or lower classes.

Money Advice on Debt, and Personal Budgeting that Victorians Loved

Consider some of these wise proverbs and sayings, many of which were penned hundreds of years ago and which are just as applicable today as they were back then.

Saving Money and Personal Budgeting

On budgeting carefully and not investing hastily: — Proverbs 21:5: “Plan carefully and you will have plenty; if you act too quickly, you will never have enough.” Today’s English Version.

On seeking advice before making decisions: “There is a frustrating of plans where there is no confidential talk.” —Proverbs 15:22

On having a definite plan and avoiding impulse buying: “The shrewd one considers his steps.”— Proverbs 14:15

Keeping money in its place: “Give me neither poverty nor riches.” — Proverbs 30:8


Expressions and Quotes regarding Finances in Victorian Times

Victorians lived well and generally even middle class families could afford a cook or a housemaid at least.  However, although fairly extravagant themselves, they expected servants to be frugal and make every penny count.
