The Importance of Manners and Etiquette

"Good manners reflect something for the inside, an innate sense of consideration for others and respect for self."
Emily Post

"Professional is not a label you give yourself. It is a description you hope others will apply to you."
David Maister

"Respect for ourselves guides our morals. Respect for others guides our manners."
Lawrence Sterne
