''Bedew no man's face with your spittle by approaching too near him when you speak.''
In other words: Say it, don't spray it! That's just one snippet from this book containing 110 tips on tact and advice on etiquette. Compiled by George Washington at the age of 14 from another source, these short sayings on civility point you to a variety of respectful, considerate behaviors.
These are not all old-fashioned, outdated customs, either; many could—and should—be followed by people today, whether at work or in casual social gatherings, like ''Turn not your back to others especially in speaking,'' ''Shift not yourself in the sight of others nor gnaw your nails,'' and ''Strive not with your superiors in argument, but always submit your judgment to others with modesty.''
