Manners quotes

Higher emotions are what separate us from the lower orders of life... Higher emotions, and table manners.

- Deanna Troi

'Tis a rule of manners to avoid exaggeration.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Good manners will open doors that the best education cannot.

- Clarence Thomas

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

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.

- Bagnold, Enid

Manners must adorn knowledge, and smooth its way through the world.

- Chesterfield, Lord

Manners are the happy way of doing things; each once a stroke of genius or of love --now repeated and hardened into usage. They form at last a rich varnish, with which the routine of life is washed, and its details adorned. If they are superficial, so are the dewdrops which give such depth to the morning meadows.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Rudeness is a weak imitation of strength.

- Hoffer, Eric

A man's own good breeding is the best security against other people's ill manners.

- Chesterfield, Lord

The highest perfection of politeness is only a beautiful edifice, built, from the base to the dome, of ungraceful and gilded forms of charitable and unselfish lying.

- Twain, Mark

Politeness is the flower of humanity.

- Joubert, Joseph

A man's own manner and character is what most becomes him.

- Cicero, Marcus T.

Manners are the hypocrisy of a nation.

- Balzac, Honore De

We are citizens of an age, as well as of a State; and if it is held to be unseemly, or even inadmissible, for a man to cut himself off from the customs and manners of the circle in which he lives, why should it be less of a duty, in the choice of his activity, to submit his decision to the needs and the taste of his century?

- Schiller, Johann Friedrich Von

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.

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

- Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

The only true source of politeness is consideration.

- Simms, William Gilmore

Parents are usually more careful to bestow knowledge on their children rather than virtue, the art of speaking well rather than doing well; but their manners should be of the greatest concern.

- Fuller, R. Buckminster

You can't be truly rude until you understand good manners.

- Rita Mae Brown

You lose your manners when you're poor.

- Hellman, Lillian
