  • The great secret, Eliza, is not having bad manners or good manners or any other particular sort of manners, but having the same mannr for all human souls. In short, behaving as if you were in Heaven, where there are no third-class carriages, and one soul is as good as another.
    -Pygmalion, George Bernard Shaw
