C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Civility
 
  Civility is but a desire to receive civility, and to be esteemed polite.
La Rochefoucauld.    
  1
  Whilst thou livest keep a good tongue in thy head.
Shakespeare.    
  2
  A good word is an easy obligation, but not to speak ill, requires only our silence, which costs us nothing.
Tillotson.    
  3
  The insolent civility of a proud man is, if possible, more shocking than his rudeness could be; because he shows you, by his manner, that he thinks it mere condescension in him; and that his goodness alone bestows upon you what you have no pretense to claim.
Chesterfield.
