A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on cities, kindness, and words

URBANITY, n. The kind of civility that urban observers ascribe to dwellers in all cities but New York. Its commonest expression is heard in the words, "I beg your pardon," and it is not consistent with disregard of the rights of others.

Ambrose Bierce (1842 - 1914)
