ETIQUETTE
[ Also see Behavior Ceremony Correctness Custom Good Breeding Manners Propriety Refinement ]

      - Joseph Addison

Starch makes the gentleman, etiquette the lady.
      - George Bryan Brummell (Beau Brummell)

There was a general whisper, toss, and wiggle,
  But etiquette forbade them all to giggle.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

There's nothing in the world like etiquette
  In kingly chambers, or imperial halls,
    As also at the race and county balls.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Etiquette has no regard for moral qualities.
      - Douglas William Jerrold

Etiquette is the ceremonial code of polite life, more voluminous and minute in each portion of society according to its rank.
      - John Ramsay McCulloch

Trifles themselves are elegant in him.
      - Alexander Pope

A finished person is a boring person.
      - Anna Quindlen

A man may with more impunity be guilty of an actual breach, either of real good breeding or good morals, than appear ignorant of the most minute points of fashionable etiquette.
      - Sir Walter Scott

O place, O form, How often dost thou with thy case, thy habit,
  Wrench awe from fools, and tie the wiser souls
    To thy false seeming!
      - William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure
         (Angelo at II,iii)

Etiquette is the invention of wise men to keep fools at a distance.
      - Sir Richard Steele
