Address
 
  Address makes opportunities; the want of it gives them.
Bovee.    
  1
  Brahma once asked of Force, “Who is stronger than thou?” She replied, “Address.”
Victor Hugo.

  Give a boy address and accomplishments, and you give him the mastery of palaces and fortunes where he goes. He has not the trouble of earning or owning them; they solicit him to enter and possess.
Emerson.

  A man who knows the world will not only make the most of everything he does know, but of many things that he does not know; and will gain more credit by his adroit mode of hiding his ignorance than the pedant by his awkward attempt to exhibit his erudition.
Colton.    
  4
  There is a certain artificial polish, a commonplace vivacity acquired by perpetually mingling in the beau monde, which, in the commerce of the world, supplies the place of natural suavity and good-humor, but is purchased at the expense of all original and sterling traits of character.
Washington Irving.
