CIVILITY
[ Also see Address Amiability Complacency Courtesy Deference Good Breeding Incivility Insult Manners Politeness Refinement Rudeness ]

The insolent civility of a proud man is, if possible, more shocking than his rudeness could be; because he shows you, by his manner, that he thinks it mere condescension in him; and that his goodness alone bestows upon you what you have no pretense to claim.
      - 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope

Be nice to people on your way up because you might meet 'em on your way down.
      - Jimmy Durante

Be civil to all, sociable to many, familiar with few, friend to one, enemy to none.
      - Benjamin Franklin

Civility is but a desire to receive civility, and to be esteemed polite.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

Be nice to people on your way up because you'll meet 'em on your way down.
      - Wilson Mizner

Whilst thou livest, keep a good tongue in thy head.
      - William Shakespeare

A good word is an easy obligation, but not to speak ill, requires only our silence, which costs us nothing.
      - John Tillotson
