Niceness

  • You've been brought up to be nice — and that's a dangerous profession.

  • Nobody can afford to appear more pleasant than they really are!

  • Nice is a pallid virtue. Not like honesty or courage or perseverance. On the other hand, in a nation notably lacking in civility, there is much to be said for nice.

  • Dr. Chumley, my mother used to say to me, 'In this world, Elwood' — she always called me Elwood — she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh, so smart or oh, so pleasant.' For years I was smart. I recommend pleasant.

  • nice is such a rip-off.

  • Nice! you're so terribly nice you can't do anything other people do.
