Do unto others as you would others should do to you. You can never be rude if you bear the rule always in mind, for what lady likes to be treated rudely? True Christian politeness will always be the result of an unselfish regard for the feelings of others, and though you may err in the ceremonious points of etiquette, you will never be im polite. Politeness, founded upon such a rule, becomes the expression, in graceful manner, of social virtues. The spirit of politeness consists in a certain attention to forms and ceremonies, which are meant both to please others and ourselves, and to make others pleased with us ;a still clearer definition may be given by saying that politeness is goodness of heart put into daily practice; the.re can be no true, politeness without kindness, purity, singleness of heart, and sensibility. Many believe that politeness is but a mask worn in the world to conceal bad passions and impulses, and to make a show of possessing virtues not really existing in the heart; thus, that politeness is merely hypocrisy and dissimulation. Do not believe this; be certain that those who profess such a doctrine are practising themselves the deceit they condemn so much.

Such people scout politeness, because, to be truly a lady, one must carry the principles into every circumstance of life, into the family circle, the most intimate friendship, and never forget to extend the gentle courtesies of life to every one.

Als Amerika noch höflich war Was der erste amerikanische Präsident als Dreizehnjähriger schon wusste: Höflichkeit kommt nie aus der Mode. In diesem Fundstück aus dem 18. Jahrhundert kombiniert er auf originelle Weise Benimmratgeber mit philosophischen Lebensweisheiten. Washington, der in jungen Jahren noch mit der Rechtschreibung kämpfte, schrieb über Tischmanieren, das Verhalten im Gespräch und persönliche Charakterpflege. Nicht zuletzt dem einen oder anderen amtierenden Präsidenten würde dieses Buch guttun! »In der Gegenwart anderer sollst du nicht vor dich hin summen, mit den Fingern trommeln oder mit den Füßen den Takt schlagen.« (Nr. 4) »Entledige dich nicht deiner Kleidung, wenn andere dabei sind, und verlasse die Garderobe nicht nur halb bekleidet.« (Nr. 7) »Deine Miene sei angenehm, sollte aber den nötigen Ernst zeigen, wenn es um ernste Dinge geht.« (Nr. 19)

Bowing to Necessities

A History of Manners in America, 1620-1860

Anglo-Americans wrestled with some profound cultural contradictions as they shifted from the hierarchical and patriarchal society of the seventeenth-century frontier to the modern and fluid class democracy of the mid-nineteenth century. How could traditional inequality be maintained in the socially leveling environment of the early colonial wilderness? And how could nineteenth-century Americans pretend to be equal in an increasingly unequal society? Bowing to Necessities argues that manners provided ritual solutions to these central cultural problems by allowing Americans to act out--and thus reinforce--power relations just as these relations underwent challenges. Analyzing the many sermons, child-rearing guides, advice books, and etiquette manuals that taught Americans how to behave, this book connects these instructions to individual practices and personal concerns found in contemporary diaries and letters. It also illuminates crucial connections between evolving class, age, and gender relations. A social and cultural history with a unique and fascinating perspective, Hemphill's wide-ranging study offers readers a panorama of America's social customs from colonial times to the Civil War.

Der wunderschöne viktorianische Klassiker liebevoll und zeitgemäß übersetzt: Nachdem ihr Vater der Kirche Englands aus Gewissensgründen den Rücken gekehrt hat, ist die junge und behütet aufgewachsene Margaret Hale gezwungen, mit ihrer Familie vom idyllischen Süden in den industriell geprägten Norden des Landes zu übersiedeln. Sie freundet sich rasch mit dem gewerkschaftlich engagierten Weber Nicholas Higgins an und ist zutiefst schockiert ob des ständig schwelenden Konflikts zwischen den ausgebeuteten Industriearbeitern und den wohlhabenden Baumwollfabrikanten. Schon bald gerät die dickköpfige Margaret mit dem jungen und charismatischen Spinnereibesitzer John Thornton aneinander, der all das verkörpert, was sie abgrundtief verabscheut: die Industrie, die Macht des Geldes und das aufstrebende Händlertum. Trotz ihrer spröden Art verliebt er sich in sie. Als im August ein Generalstreik die Stadt lahmlegt und Margarets Mutter schwer erkrankt, werden sie hineingezogen in den Strudel der Ereignisse... Wird es ihnen gelingen, über ihren eigenen Schatten zu springen und zueinanderzufinden? Inklusive der Antwort auf die wohl brennendste aller Fragen: Wer war der echte John Thornton und wie verlief sein Leben?
