Famous quotes containing the words stock and/or breeding:

    I consider that a man’s brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose.
    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)

    Civility, which is a disposition to accommodate and oblige others, is essentially the same in every country; but good breeding, as it is called, which is the manner of exerting that disposition, is different in almost every country, and merely local; and every man of sense imitates and conforms to that local good breeding of the place which he is at.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
