Manners are the ornament of action.
      - Samuel Smiles

Politeness goes far, yet costs nothing.
      - Samuel Smiles

Manners are the shadows of virtues; the momentary display of those qualities which our fellow-creatures love and respect. If we strive to become, then, what we strive to appear, manners may often be rendered useful guides to the performance of our duties.
      - Sydney Smith

Wisdom, valor, justice and learning cannot keep a man in countenance that is possessed of these excellences if he wants that inferior art of line and behavior called good breeding.
      - Sir Richard Steele

Few are qualified to shine in company; but it is in most men's power to be agreeable.
      - Jonathan Swift

      - Jonathan Swift

One principal part of good breeding is to suit our behavior to the three several degrees of men: our superiors, our equals, and those below us.
      - Jonathan Swift

      - Jonathan Swift

Her manners had not that repose
  Which stamps the caste of Vere de Vere.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson,
        Lady Clara Vere de Vere (st. 5)

Suit your manner to the man.
  [Lat., Ut homo est, ita morem geras.]
      - Terence (Publius Terentius Afer), Adelphi
         (III, 3, 78)

Obsequiousness begets friends; truth, hatred.
  [Lat., Obsequium amicos, veritas odium parit.]
      - Terence (Publius Terentius Afer), Andria
         (I, 1, 41)

Good manners will open doors that the best education cannot.
      - Clarence Thomas

Truth, justice, and reason lose all their force, and all their lustre, when they are not accompanied with agreeable manners.
      - James Thomson (1)

There is a policy in manner. I have heard one, not inexperienced in the pursuit of fame, give it his earnest support, as being the surest passport to absolute and brilliant success.
      - Henry Theodore Tuckerman

Better too much form than too little.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately

Good manners are a part of good morals.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately

Manners are one of the greatest engines of influence ever given to man.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately

To be always thinking about your manners is not the way to make them good; because the very perfection of manners is not to think about yourself.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately

An imposing air should always be taken as an evidence of imposition. Dignity is often a veil between us and the real truth of things.
      - Edwin Percy Whipple

Manners,--the final and perfect flower of noble character.
      - William Winter
