Mrs. Falk Feeley

  • The real adherent of the sporting ethic knows that when he's wet, cold, hungry, sore, exhausted, and perhaps a little frightened, he's having a marvelous time ...

  • ... manners are about making other people reasonably comfortable. If etiquette is, in part, about how to eat that artichoke, manners is knowing not to serve them if you suspect that someone at supper is going to be uncomfortable about being confronted with one.

  • Much of good manners is about knowing when to pretend that what's happening isn't happening.

  • The single drawback to being a good correspondent is that when finally you see the person to whom you've written for quite some time, he may find you rather less enchanting in person than you seemed on the printed page.

Mrs. Falk Feeley, U.S. writer

(1941)

Full name: Patricia Falk Feeley.
