This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1805 edition.

There are people in Social Life who are always ready to receive but never will give; who desire to be amused, instructed, served and applauded^ paid and nursed as it were by the rest of the Public, without giving any thing in return; who complain of being tired to death by the dulness of their companions, but do not consider that others have just reason to retort the same complaint against themselves; who will sit quietly upon their chair, listening with pleasure to the sallies and exhilarating discourses of others, without taking the trouble to contribute any thing to the amusement of the company.

There are also many who constantly are speaking only of their own person, of their domestic concerns, their relations, deeds and official occupations; who turn every subject that is brought upon the carpet into that channel, and take every simile, every idea which they start from these things.

Do not speak of subjects that can be interesting to no one but yourself. Make no allusion to anecdotes which are unknown to the company in which you are, nor to passages from books which they probably never have read. Converse not in a foreign language if you have reason to believe that not all those who are present understand it. Learn to...
