Manners quotes
Manners
Politeness makes one appear outwardly as they should be within.

- La Bruyere, Jean De
Whoever is admitted or sought for, in company, upon any other account than that of his merit and manners, is never respected there, but only made use of. We will have such-a-one, for he sings prettily; we will invite such-a-one to a ball, for he dances well; we will have such-a-one at supper, for he is always joking and laughing; we will ask another because he plays deep at all games, or because he can drink a great deal. These are all vilifying distinctions, mortifying preferences, and exclude all ideas of esteem and regard. Whoever is had (as it is called) in company for the sake of any one thing singly, is singly that thing, and will never be considered in any other light; consequently never respected, let his merits be what they will.

- Chesterfield, Lord
To have respect for ourselves guides our morals; and to have a deference for others governs our manners.

- Lawrence Sterne
What once were vices are manners now.

- Seneca
I seek constantly to improve my manners and graces, for they are the sugar to which all are attracted.

- Og Mandino
A traveler of taste will notice that the wise are polite all over the world, but the fool only at home.

- Goldsmith, Oliver
Of course I lie to people. But I lie altruistically -- for our mutual good. The lie is the basic building block of good manners. That may seem mildly shocking to a moralist -- but then what isn t?

- Crisp, Quentin
Good manners and good morals are sworn friends and fast allies.

- C. A. Bartol
Men's evil manners live in brass; their virtues we write in water.

- William Shakespeare
War is the great scavenger of thought. It is the sovereign disinfectant, and its red stream of blood is the Condy's Fluid that cleans out the stagnant pools and clotted channels of the intellect. We have awakened from an opium-dream of comfort, of ease, of that miserable poltroonery of the sheltered life. Our wish for indulgence of every sort, our laxity of manners, our wretched sensitiveness to personal inconvenience, these are suddenly lifted before us in their true guise as the specters of national decay; and we have risen from the lethargy of our dilettantism to lay them, before it is too late, by the flashing of the unsheathed sword.

- Gosse, Sir Edmund
Good manners have much to do with the emotions. To make them ring true, one must feel them, not merely exhibit them.

- Vanderbilt, Amy
DUEL, n. A formal ceremony preliminary to the reconciliation of two enemies. Great skill is necessary to its satisfactory observance; if awkwardly performed the most unexpected and deplorable consequences sometimes ensue. A long time ago a man lost his life in a duel. That dueling's a gentlemanly vice I hold; and wish that it had been my lot To live my life out in some favored spot -- Some country where it is considered nice To split a rival like a fish, or slice A husband like a spud, or with a shot Bring down a debtor doubled in a knot And ready to be put upon the ice. Some miscreants there are, whom I do long To shoot, to stab, or some such way reclaim The scurvy rogues to better lives and manners, I seem to see them now -- a mighty throng. It looks as if to challenge _me_ they came, Jauntily marching with brass bands and banners! Xamba Q. Dar

- Ambrose Bierce
Respect for ourselves guides our morals, respect for others guides our manners.

- Sterne, Laurence
Ceremonies are different in every country, but true politeness is everywhere the same.

- Goldsmith, Oliver
They teach the morals of a whore, and the manners of a dancing master.

- Johnson, Samuel
Good manners sometimes means simply putting up with other people's bad manners.

- H. Jackson Browne
Manners are like the shadows of virtues, they are the momentary display of those qualities which our fellow creatures love and respect.

- Smith, Sydney
I have always been of the mind that in a democracy manners are the only effective weapons against the bowie-knife.

- Lowell, James Russell
Those that are good manners at the court are as ridiculous in the country, as the behavior of the country is most mockable at the court.

- William Shakespeare
Ceremony is necessary as the outwork and defense of manners.

- Chesterfield, Lord
