Gem

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
