Definitions and meaning of she
From Middle Englishsche, hye(“she”), from earlier scho, hyo, ȝho(“she”), a phonetic development of Old Englishhēo, hīo(“she”), from Proto-Germanic*hijōf(“this, this one”), from Proto-Indo-European*ḱe-, *ḱey-(“this, here”). Cognate with English dialectal hoo(“she”), Scotsscho, shu(“she”), Saterland Frisianjo, ju(“she”), West Frisianhja(“she”), North Frisianjü(“she”), Danishhun(“she”), Swedishhon(“she”). More at he.
Despite the similarity in appearance, the Old English feminine demonstrative sēo(“that”) is probably not the source of Middle English forms in sch-. Rather, the sch- developed out of a change in stress upon hío resulting in hió, spelt ȝho (ȝh = hȝ, compare wh = hw, lh = hl, etc.), and the h was palatalised into the sh sound. Similar alteration can be seen the name Shetland, from Old NorseHjaltland; ȝho is the immediate parent form of Middle Englishscho and sche.

Optimal experience is thus something that we make happen. For a child, it could be placing with trembling fingers the last block on a tower she has built, higher than any she has built so far; for a swimmer, it could be trying to beat his own record; for a violinist, mastering an intricate musical passage.

Come, come, we know very well what all the matter is; but if one won’t, another will; so pretty a gentleman need never want a lady. I am sure, if I was you, I would see the finest she that ever wore a head hanged, before I would go for a soldier for her.
