Do manners really matter?

This weeks theme is manners – something I know a lot about having taught etiquette, finishing, and fashion for over 3 decades. Wow, that sounds like such a long time!

I’ve noticed that though the rules of etiquette have changed,  manners remain constant; manners are about us, our view of the world and others. It’s how we choose to show up and be – manners are a vital people skill.

Our first quote, for and about manners, is from Lord Chesterfield who said, “Prepare yourself for the world, as athletes used to do for their exercises; oil your mind and your manners, to give them the necessary suppleness and flexibility; strength alone will not do.”

We must oil our manners; by knowing them, using them, and having our manners be of benefit to others.

“A person with manners is a person who helps others feel they matter.”  Shawna Schuh
