"Class never runs scared. It is sure-footed and confident in the
knowledge that you can meet life head on and handle whatever comes
"Jacob had it. Esau didn't. Symbolically, we can look to Jacob's
wrestling match with the angel. Those who have class have wrestled
with their own personal angel and won a victory that marks them
"Class never makes excuses. It takes its lumps and learns from past
"Class is considerate of others. It knows that good manners are
nothing more than a series of small sacrifices."
"Class bespeaks an aristocracy that has nothing to do with ancestors
or money. The most affluent blueblood can be totally without class
while the descendant of a Welsh miner may ooze class from every pore."
"Class never tries to build itself up by tearing others down. Class is
already up and need not strive to look better by making others look
"Class can "walk with kings and keep its virtue and talk with crowds
and keep the common touch." Everyone is comfortable with the person
who has class because he is comfortable with himself."
"If you have class you don't need much of anything else. If you don't
have it, no matter what else you have, it doesn't make much
difference." ~Ann Landers
