“The letter we all love to receive is one that carries so much of the writer’s personality that she seems to be sitting beside us, looking at us directly and talking just as she really would, could she have come on a magic carpet, instead of sending her proxy in ink-made characters on mere paper.”

- Emily Post

I’ve been having a field day (er, night) reading emilypost.com. Manners, according to Emily, “are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.”

Two quotes. One Post.
