"Politeness is benevolence in small things. 
A true gentleman must regard the rights and feelings of others,
even in matters the most trivial...

Whenever the young find themselves in the company of those who do not make them feel at ease, they should know that they are not in the society of true ladies and true gentlemen, but of pretenders;

 that well-bred men and women can only feel at home in the society of the well-bred."
Our Deportment, John Young

"I know that I know nothing"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_know_that_I_know_nothing

"The Apology of Socrates...
'Are you not ashamed of setting your heart on wealth and honours while you have no care for wisdom and truth and making your soul better?...
I do know that it is a bad thing to desert one's post and I prefer what may be good to what I know to be bad...
In me you have a stimulating critic, persistently urging you with persuasion and reproaches, persistently testing your opinions and trying to show you that your are really ignorant of what you suppose you know. Daily discussion of the matters about which you hear me conversing is the highest good for man. Life that is not tested by such discussion is not worth living'..."

"We...are faced with a capital question:
What shall we do with these uninvited guests who suddenly installed themselves in this country,
or rather, with these evil parasites who are both thieves and assassins?
Can we exterminate them just as, for instance, bedbugs are killed?
This would be the simplest and handliest way of getting rid of them..."
