Women and foxes, being weak, are distinguished by superior tact.
      - Ambrose Bierce

Tact consists in knowing how far to go too far.
      - Jean Cocteau

Grant graciously what you cannot refuse safely, and conciliate those you cannot conquer.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

In my experience tact is usually worse than the brutalities of truth.
      - Robertson Davies

Perseverance and tact are the two great qualities most valuable for all men who would mount, but especially for those who have to step out of the crowd.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

Without tact you can learn nothing.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

Tact is after all a kind of mind reading.
      - Sarah Orne Jewett

Talent is something, but tact is everything. Talent is serious, sober, grave, and respectable; tact is all that, and more, too. It is not a seventh sense, but is the life of all the five. It is the open eye, the quick ear, the judging taste, the keen smell, and the lively touch; it is the interpreter of all riddles, the surmounter of all difficulties, the remover of all obstacles.
      - William Pitt Scargill

Tact is one of the first mental virtues, the absence of which is often fatal to the best of talents; it supplies the place of many talents.
      - William Gilmore Simms

I have known some men possessed of good qualities, which were very serviceable to others, but useless to themselves; like a sundial on the front of a house, to inform the neighbors and passengers, but not the owner within.
      - Jonathan Swift

A little management may often evade resistance, which a vast force might vainly strive to overcome.
      - Unknown
