Good Manners Quotations
Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you - not because they are nice, but because you are.
Good manners have much to do with the emotions. To make them ring true, one must feel them, not merely exhibit them.
Sir Robert Baden-Powell
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
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.
I seek constantly to improve my manners and graces, for they are the sugar to which all are attracted.

this website is soooooooooooooooooooooooloooooo cool that i told my husband about it
My mother always said, "Good manners make us nice to know." Simple, but so true.
When you cross directly in front of someone, blocking their way, when they are clearly searching for an item on a grocery or pharmacy shelf, please say, "Excuse me." I find that most people do not say this and I find it rude. I feel as if I am invisible. I always say, "Excuse me" when I need to block them, even for a second or two. Bring back good manners!
