Resources:
  From Vogue (1929): What advantage have those who observe good manners over those who do not?
   This advantage: that they have more control over themselves and therefore over others; that their
   influence, since it excites no opposition, is more powerful than that of the rude; that their companionship
   is more agreeable and therefore enables them to exercise a wider choice in companions.
  From Miss Manners (1982): If one always does the right thing, one does not have to read nasty little
   books about how to deal with guilt. One never has any.
  From “How Rude!” (1997): Good manners are the one thing money can’t buy. All you have to do is
   take one look around you to realize that rudeness in an equal opportunity annoyer. Thus, manners are a
   great equalizing force in society.
  From George Washington’s Rules of Civility and Decent Behavior (a school exercise): #15 Keep your
   nails clean and short, also your hands and teeth clean yet without showing any great concern for them.
   (He wrote a list of 110 rules.)
