Famous quotes containing the word breeding:

    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)

    Courtesy is breeding. Breeding is an excellent thing. Always remember that.
    Lillian Hellman (1905–1984)

    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)
