Famous quotes containing the word breeding:

    The surest route to breeding jealousy is to compare. Since jealousy comes from feeling “less than” another, comparisons only fan the fires.
    Dorothy Corkville Briggs (20th century)

    Good breeding and good nature do incline us rather to help and raise people up to ourselves, than to mortify and depress them, and, in truth, our own private interest concurs in it, as it is making ourselves so many friends, instead of so many enemies.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    A man’s own good breeding is his best security against other people’s ill-manners.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
