"It is in the moment of deepest sorrow that etiquette performs its most vital and real service. It is the time-worn servitor Etiquette who draws the shades, who muffles the bell, who keeps the house quiet, who hushes voices and footsteps of sudden noises, who decrees that the last rites be performed smoothly and with beauty and gravity so the poignancy of grief may in so far as possible be assuaged."
