“I think as you get older you become more of who you always were. You become a more concentrated version of yourself. You really learn who you are, why you’re unique, who you’ve always been […] There’s a winnowing away of nonessentials, sometimes essentials, it’s true, but what remains is your core, your essence, the real ‘you,’ and you realize you’re still you without what you’ve lost as long as you still have all your marbles–or most of them anyway.” – Stacey McGlynn

“One reason that the task of inventing manners is so difficult is that etiquette is folk custom, and people have emotional ties to the forms of their youth. That is why there is such hostility between generations in times of rapid change; their manners being different, each feels affronted by the other, taking even the most surface choices for challenges.” – Judith Martin
