Our Society: A Complete Treatise of the Usages That Govern the Most Refined Homes and Social Circles, Our Moral, Social, Physical and Business Culture

The book was co-authored by Rose Elizabeth Cleveland, sister to then-President Grover Cleveland.

"The aim of everyone is success. The hope we hold out to all young persons is that their lives may be successful. We urge upon them the necessity of industry, neatness, perseverance, honesty and economy, not alone for the building of character, but also for the attainment of success. Yet the end reached is the building of character, and the outward success is the sign of its achievement. He who asserts that evident, practical success denotes no superiority, errs fully as much as he who exalts the practical at the expense of character. Though a man has made a fortune, he may have weak characteristics, but in some way he has surpassed his fellow men in acquiring that for which thousands are striving." -- Preface
