TABLE ETIQUETTE #3

Aim at bright and general conversation, avoiding all personalities and any subject that all cannot join in. This is largely determined by the character of the company,. The guests should accommodate themselves to their surroundings.

---A Dictionary of Etiquette: A Guide to Polite Usage for All Social Functions, Walter Cox Green, 1904


Time spent on any item of the agenda will be in inverse proportion to the sum involved.
C. Northcote Parkinson (1909-93)
