- Crisp, Quentin
Prithee don't screw your wit beyond the compass of good manners.

- Cibber, Colley
Consideration for others is the basic of a good life, a good society.

- Confucius
Manners are the hypocrisy of a nation.

- Balzac, Honore De
Modern morality and manners suppress all natural instincts, keep people ignorant of the facts of nature and make them fighting drunk on bogey tales.

- Crowley, Aleister
I have met charming people, lots who would be charming if they hadn't got a complex about the British and everyone has pleasant and cheerful manners and I like most of the American voices. On the other hand I don't believe they have any God and their hats are frightful. On balance I prefer the Arabs.

- Stark, Freya
Men's evil manners live in brass, their virtues we write in water.

- Shakespeare, William
Manners require time, and nothing is more vulgar than haste.

Treat your superior as a father, your equal as a brother, and your inferior as a son.

In marriage there are no manners to keep up, and beneath the wildest accusations no real criticism. Each is familiar with that ancient child in the other who may erupt again. We are not ridiculous to ourselves. We are ageless. That is the luxury of the wedding ring.

Don't reserve your best behavior for special occasions. You can't have two sets of manners, two social codes - one for those you admire and want to impress, another for those whom you consider unimportant. You must be the same to all people.

- Lillian Eichler Watson
Youth is the time to go flashing from one end of the world to the other to try the manners of different nations; to hear the chimes at midnight; to see the sunrise in town and country; to be converted at a revival; to circumnavigate the metaphysics, write halting verses, run a mile to see a fire, and wait all day long in the theatre to applaud Hernani.

- Stevenson, Robert Louis
For the world was changing, and sweetness was gone, and virtue too. Worry had crept on a corroding world, and what was lost--good manners, ease and beauty? Ladies were not ladies anymore, and you couldn't trust a gentleman's word... Oh, strawberries don't taste as they used to and the thighs of women have lost their clutch!

- John Steinbeck
