Lord Chesterfield Quotes

Good breeding is the result of good sense, some good nature, and a little self-denial for the sake of others.

Lord Chesterfield

Lord Chesterfield

Lord Chesterfield

Horse-play, romping, frequent and loud fits of laughter, jokes, and indiscriminate familiarity, will sink both merit and knowledge into a degree of contempt. They compose at most a merry fellow; and a merry fellow was never yet a respectable man.

Lord Chesterfield

Persist and persevere, and you will find most things that are attainable, possible.

Lord Chesterfield
