Manners quotes
Manners
Good manners are just a way of showing other people that we have respect for them.

- Bill Kelly
The basis of good manners is self-reliance.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
'Tis a rule of manners to avoid exaggeration.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Nothing is so great an example of bad manners as flattery. If you flatter all the company, you please none; If you flatter only one or two, you offend the rest.

- Swift, Jonathan
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
Opinions alter, manners change, creeds rise and fall, but the moral laws are written on the table of eternity.

- Lord Acton
Among well bred people a mutual deference is affected, contempt for others is disguised; authority concealed; attention given to each in his turn; and an easy stream of conversation maintained without vehemence, without interruption, without eagerness for victory, and without any airs of superiority.

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

- Cibber, Colley
Manners easily and rapidly mature into morals.

- Mann, Horace
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
Good manners and good morals are sworn friends and fast allies.

- C. A. Bartol
Manners are like the shadows of virtues, they are the momentary display of those qualities which our fellow creatures love and respect.

- Smith, Sydney
We cannot always oblige; but we can always speak obligingly.

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

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
A man's own good breeding is the best security against other people's ill manners.

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

- Lawrence Sterne
Manhood is melted into courtesies, valor into compliment, and men are only turned into tongue, and trim ones, too.

- Shakespeare, William
The only true source of politeness is consideration.

- Simms, William Gilmore
Respect for ourselves guides our morals, respect for others guides our manners.

- Sterne, Laurence
