Class by Ann Landers

After shopping around my hometown this past weekend, which I rarely do, I came across some scary people. It got me to thinking about why people don't care how they look in public or how they behave. When I was looking on my computer for a photo, I found my copy of Class by Ann Landers and felt the need to re-post it. The collage of the women above are some ladies who I feel represent the statement below in every way. I don't really feel age has anything to do with it, because there are some young girls who are very aware what being classy is all about. I think how you were brought up has much to do with it, I still feel our parents teach us how to be as adults. I love reading this every so often, just to remind me of Ms. Landers thoughts which are so empowering.

Ann Landers

Class never runs scared.
It is sure-footed and confident.
It can handle anything that comes along.

Class has a sense of humor.
It knows a good laugh is the best lubricant for oiling the machinery of human relations.

Class never makes excuses.
It takes its lumps and learns from past mistakes.
Class knows that good manners are nothing more than a series of small, inconsequential sacrifices.

Class bespeaks an aristocracy that has nothing to do with ancestors or money.
Some wealthy “blue bloods” have no
class, while individuals who are struggling to make ends meet are loaded with it.

Class is real.
It can’t be faked.

Class never tried to build itself by tearing others down.
Class is already up and need not strive to look better by making others look worse.

Class can “walk with kings and keep it’s virtue and talk with crowds and keep the common touch.” Everyone is comfortable with the person who has class because that person is comfortable with himself.

If you have
class, you’ve got it made.

If you don’t have
class, no matter what else you have, it doesn’t make any difference.

What do you think, has class become something of the past?
