Quote of the Month

 

From the book: 

"Rules of Civility & Decent Behaviour 

in company and conversation"

 

"Sleep not when others speak, sit not when others stand, speak not when you should hold your peace, walk not on when others stop."

"Kill no vermin as fleas, lice, ticks &c in the sight of others; if you see any filth or thick spittle, put your foot dexteriously upon it; if it be upon the clothes of your companions, put it off privately; and if it be upon your own clothes, return thanks to him who puts it off."

 

George Washington, America's 1st General, President and a Freemason
