Manners – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Manners are the happy way of doing things; each once a stroke of genius or of love –now repeated and hardened into usage. They form at last a rich varnish, with which the routine of life is washed, and its details adorned. If they are superficial, so are the dewdrops which give such depth to the morning meadows. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
