Manners quotes
Manners
Respect for ourselves guides our morals, respect for others guides our manners.

- Sterne, Laurence
The man who is admired for the ingenuity of his larceny is almost always rediscovering some earlier form of fraud. The basic forms are all known, have all been practiced. The manners of capitalism improve. The morals may not.

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

- Goldsmith, Oliver
I write about violence as naturally as Jane Austen wrote about manners. Violence shapes and obsesses our society, and if we do not stop being violent we have no future.

- Bond, Edward
Nothing is more noble than politeness, and nothing more ridiculous than ceremony.

- Proverb
Be simple in words, manners, and gestures. Amuse as well as instruct. If you can make a man laugh, you can make him think and make him like and believe you.

- Smith, Alfred E.
Ceremony is necessary as the outwork and defense of manners.

- Chesterfield, Lord
Simplicity in character, in manners, in style; in all things the supreme excellence is simplicity.

- Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Children are natural mimics -- they act like their parents in spite of every attempt to teach them good manners.

Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.

- Jordan, June
'Tis a rule of manners to avoid exaggeration.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Some are able and humane men and some are low-grade individuals with the morals of a goat, the artistic integrity of a slot machine, and the manners of a floorwalker with delusions of grandeur.

- Chandler, Raymond
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
Music is a discipline, and a mistress of order and good manners, she makes the people milder and gentler, more moral and more reasonable.

- Martin Luther
Consideration for others is the basic of a good life, a good society.

- Confucius
Good manners are made up of petty sacrifices.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Manners are the hypocrisy of a nation.

- Balzac, Honore De
Sculpture and painting have the effect of teaching us manners and abolishing hurry.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
What once were vices are manners now.

- Seneca
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
