Manners quotes
Manners
Prepare yourself for the world, as the athletes used to do for their exercise; oil your mind and your manners, to give them the necessary suppleness and flexibility; strength alone will not do.

- Earl of Chesterfield
Manners are love in a cool climate.

- Crisp, Quentin
Nothing is more noble than politeness, and nothing more ridiculous than ceremony.

- Proverb
I love everything thatís old: old friends, old times, old manners, old books, and old wine.

- Oliver Goldsmith
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
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
Prithee don't screw your wit beyond the compass of good manners.

- Cibber, Colley
Respect for ourselves guides our morals, respect for others guides our manners.

- Sterne, Laurence
He is the very pineapple of politeness!

- Sheridan, Richard Brinsley
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
I am told that today rather more than 60 per cent of the men who go to university go on a Government grant. This is a new class that has entered upon the scene. It is the white-collar proletariat. They do not go to university to acquire culture but to get a job, and when they have got one, scamp it. They have no manners and are woefully unable to deal with any social predicament. Their idea of a celebration is to go to a public house and drink six beers. They are mean, malicious and envious . They are scum.

- Maugham, W. Somerset
Teach your child to hold his tongue; he'll learn fast enough to speak.

- Franklin, Benjamin
Scientists have odious manners, except when you prop up their theory; then you can borrow money of them.

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

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
It is more comfortable for me, in the long run, to be rude than polite.

- Lewis, Wyndham
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
A man's own manner and character is what most becomes him.

- Cicero, Marcus T.
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
Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.

- Post, Emily
Taste is more to do with manners than appearances. Taste is both myth and reality; it is not a style.

- Bayley, Stephen
