Ideal conversation must be an exchange of thought, and not, as many of those who worry most about their shortcomings believe, an eloquent exhibition of wit or oratory.

The attributes of a great lady may still be found in the rule of the four S's: Sincerity, Simplicity, Sympathy and Serenity.

To do exactly as your neighbors do is the only sensible rule.

Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.



1873–1960, American authority on etiquette, b. Baltimore. Born into a wealthy family, Post began her literary career as a novelist. Her best-known book, however, is Etiquette (1922), a practical guide to proper social behavior, written in a lively style. Etiquette gained wide popularity and sold over a million copies; the 12th and subsequent revised editions were edited by Post's granddaughter-in-law, Elizabeth L. Post. Emily Post broadcast on the radio after 1931 and produced a daily column on good taste that was syndicated in more than 200 newspapers. Also an authority on interior decoration, she wrote The Personality of a House (1930).

(27 October, 1873 – 25 September, 1960) was a United States author who promoted proper etiquette.

Post was born as Emily Price in Baltimore, Maryland, and was born into privilege as the only daughter of famous architect Bruce Price and his wife Josephine Lee Price. She was educated at home and attended Miss Graham's finishing school in New York where her family had moved. A popular debutante, she married society banker Edwin Main Post in 1892 and had two sons, Edwin M. Jr. (1893) and Bruce Price (1895). The couple divorced in 1905, due to her husband's infidelity.

At the turn of the century financial circumstances had compelled her to begin to write, and she produced newspaper articles on architecture and interior decoration, stories and serials for such magazines as Harper's, Scribner's, and the Century, as well as light novels, including Flight of the Moth (1904), Purple and Fine Linen (1906), Woven in the Tapestry (1908), The Title Market (1909), and The Eagle's Feather (1910).

She wrote in various styles including humorous travel books early in her career. In 1922 her book Etiquette was a best seller, and updated versions continued to be popular for decades.

After 1931 Post spoke on radio programs and wrote a column on good taste for the Bell Syndicate; it appeared daily in some 200 newspapers after 1932.

In 1946, she founded The Emily Post Institute which continues her work. On September 25, 1960 she died in her New York City apartment at the age of 86.
