Manners or etiquette (‘accessibility, affability, politeness, refinement, propriety, courtesy, and ingratiating and captivating behavior’) call for no large measure of moral determination and cannot, therefore, be reckoned as virtues. Even though manners are no virtues, they are a means of developing virtue…. The more we refine the crude elements in our nature, the more we improve our humanity and the more capable it grows of feeling the driving force of virtuous principles.
