    Excerpt from The Art of Pleasing

    I noticed, as number two, the lover's mode of greet ing the object of his affection. Students of the Art of Pleasing would do well to pay a great deal of attention to the lover's mode of salutation. His hand is stretched forth with frankness, hers is received with a quick and cordial pressure, and the shock imparted, the greeting is over. This seems a very simple matter to imitate, and yet very few can do it. How many people, on meeting you, present their hands without a particle of feeling or even life in them. You catch such a hand and feel repelled; you could ¿ing it from you, and pronounce with emphasis, Humbug l Others seize you with both hands, and hold on until you wonder if ever they are going to let go. This, too, suggests thoughts of humbug, and is not pleasing. Some present you with one or two fingers. These people are perhaps more honest than the others I have referred to, but they will never please by this mode of greeting their friends. Perhaps we might get a glimpse of the proper way of shaking hands were we to imagine ourselves having the honor of shaking hands with victoria. Our fingers would have life in them, yet we would not dare to hold on, and we certainly would not extend one or two fingers to her Majesty. I repeat that students of the Art of Pleas ing must pay very great attention to this little matter, and give every hand you grasp a quick and cordial squeeze.
