Etiquette is not a set of rules that must be followed in order to appear better than we are.
- It is the ability to be, not to seem.
- It’s a way to show respect for the people around you.
- This is the ability to create a good mood and a warm atmosphere.
- This is one of the best inventions that Italy has given to the world.
- This can be learned and I will be happy to help you with this.
