Lisa Kleypas

“Aristocrats never displayed
enthusiasm, but rather detached interest. Aristocrats relied on subtle inflections of the voice to convey
meaning. Aristocrats would say “relation” or “kinsman,” rather than “relative.” And they used the phrase
“do be good enough” rather than ask “would you.” Furthermore, it was mandatory that an aristocratic
lady should never express herself directly, but instead hint gracefully at her meaning.”
