  2.  
  3. It is the elegance that accompanies us from the first hour of the morning until bedtime and that manifests itself in the most prosaic situations, when there is no party or photographers around.
  4.  
  5. It is elegance without obligation.
  6.  
  7. It is possible to detect it in people who praise more than they criticize. In the people who listen. And when they speak, they don't judge themselves feeling like "the owner of the truth"
  8.  
  9. It is possible to detect it in people who do not use a higher tone of voice when addressing attendants.
  10.  
  11. In people who avoid embarrassing matters because they do not take pleasure in humiliating others.
  12.  
  13. It is possible to detect it in punctual people. In people who know that their elders are often grumpy and still treat them with the deference they deserve.
  14.  
  15. Elegant is the one who shows interest in subjects they do not know, is the one who presents outside the festive dates, is the one who keeps what they promised...
  16.

  33. There is no book that teaches anyone to have a generous view of the world, to be in it in a non-arrogant way.
  34.
