})({  Growing up Southern is a privilege, really.  It's more than where you're born, it's an idea and state of
     mind that seems imparted at birth.  It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country
     music.  it's being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies and coca-cola... and
     each other.  We don't become Southern - we're born that way.

})({   When life hands you lemons... squeeze them into some sweet iced tea and thank God you were born a
      southern girl!

In the South, the breeze blows softer... neighbors are friendlier, nosier, and more talkative. (By contrast
      with the Yankee, the Southerner never uses one word when ten or twenty will do).  This is a different
      place.  Our way of thinking is different, as are our ways of seeing, laughing, singing, eating, meeting
      and parting.  Our walk is different, as the old song goes, our talk and our names.  Nothing about us is
      quite the same as in the country to the north and west.  What we carry in our memories is different,
      too and that may explain everything else.


})({   Girls like us don't come around too often. Like us, and you'll grow to love us. Hate us, and you're
      wasting your time. You can't beat us and you sure as hell can't join us.


})({   "All I can say is that there's a sweetness here, a Southern sweetness, that makes sweet music. . . . If I
      had to tell somebody who had never been to the South, who had never heard of soul music, what it was,
      I'd just have to tell him that it's music from the heart, from the pulse, from the innermost feeling. That's
      my soul; that's how I sing. And that's the South."
      -- Al Green


})({   "Fiddle-dee-dee. War, war, war. This war talk's spoiling all the fun at every party this spring. I get so
      bored I could scream."
      - Scarlett O'Hara


})({   Do Southerners laugh at different things than Northerners do? Yes--Northerners.


})({   Southerners have a genius for psychological alchemy...If something intolerable simply cannot be
      changed, driven away or shot they will not only tolerate it but take pride in it as well.


 })({   The biggest myth about Southern women is that we are frail types--fainting on our sofas...nobody where
       I grew up every acted like that. We were about as fragile as coal trucks.


 })({   Snow in the South is wonderful. It has a kind of magic and mystery that it has nowhere else. And the
       reason for this is that it comes to people in the South not as the grim, unyielding tenant of Winter's
       keep, but as a strange and wild visitor from the secret North.


 })({   The South--where roots, place, family, and tradition are the essence of identity.


 })({   Southerners can claim kin with anybody. It's one of our most dextrous talents.


 })({   In the South, perhaps more than any other region, we go back to our home in dreams and memories,
       hoping it remains what it was on a lazy, still summer's day twenty years ago.


})({   A southern girl is a girl who knows full and well that she can open a door for herself but prefers for the
      gentleman to do it because it demonstrates a sense of respect. After all, every girl wants to be treated
      like a princess. We know how to make sweet tea and grits while telling you everything about any football
      team in the SEC. We pick our battles and fight with the heart of a pit bull while still maintaining grace
      and elegance. Our mystique is that of a soft-spoken, mild-mannered southern bell who could direct an
      army, loves her momma and will always be daddy's little girl.
