Excerpt:

Nothing is so easy for any woman to acquire as a charming bow. It is such a short and fleeting duty. Not a bit of trouble really; just to incline your head and spontaneously smile as though you thought "Why, there is Mrs. Smith! How glad I am to see her!"

Even to a stranger who does her a favor, a woman of charm always smiles as she says

Overview

Excerpt:

Nothing is so easy for any woman to acquire as a charming bow. It is such a short and fleeting duty. Not a bit of trouble really; just to incline your head and spontaneously smile as though you thought "Why, there is Mrs. Smith! How glad I am to see her!"

Even to a stranger who does her a favor, a woman of charm always smiles as she says "Thank you!" As a possession for either woman or man, a ready smile is more valuable in life than a ready wit; the latter may sometimes bring enemies, but the former always brings friends.

This book surprised me in the style in which it was written. There was no snobbery, just explaining it is always to our advantage to be considerate of other people. Of course, in earlier generations centered on ultra wealth and different lifestyles, some information doesn't apply to us without a house full of servants and calling cards for visitation; yet, it is interesting to read about. Basic pleasant conduct and being mindful of others' comfort paints a lovely picture of how society today should be. The book was easy to read and I wish this basic instruction would be given to our children as well. Manners gives self confidence!
