#Poise101: 10 Poise and Etiquette Quotes from my Favourite People.

What is etiquette?



#Hellurr ladies and gentlemen.


Whenever I remember my favourite quotes, I’m reminded of how I felt when I first heard them. I remember the wit, the humour, the lesson and the people who learnt them with me, and of course, the coolness of whoever made the quote.

What I love most is when I repeat these quotes organicallyūüėä

Etiquette is super important, and it is also learned. These quotes remind me of how I am to portray myself as a lady, and hope you remember the same and enjoy them as you read them with me.

See below my favourite etiquette quotes:

1. No one can make you feel inferior without your consent ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
