Ceremonies are different in every country, but true politeness is everywhere the same.
Fear guides more than gratitude.
Such dainties to them, their health it might hurt; It 's like sending them ruffles when wanting a shirt.
Girls like to be played with and rumpled a little too sometimes.
For praise too dearly lov'd, or warmly sought,Enfeebles all internal strength of thought;And the weak soul within itself unblest,Leans for all pleasure on another's breast.
