Manners, the ways that people apply the principles of etiquette, change over time and from culture to culture, but the principles do not.
-Cindy Post Senning, Ed.D. & Peggy Post
Manners and etiquette go hand in hand. Under all of it should be honesty, consideration and respect. The best thing to do in every social situation can be gotten to by being truthful, thinking of the other person’s needs and accepting him or her as they are.
