The characteristic of a well-bred man is, to converse with his inferiors without insolence, and with his superiors with respect and with ease.
--Lord Chesterfield, statesman and writer (1694-1773)
(107:3.3-6) Although we know something of all the seven secret spheres of Paradise, we know less of Divinington than of the others. Beings of high spiritual orders receive only three divine injunctions, and they are:
1. Always to show adequate respect for the experience and endowments of their seniors and superiors.
2. Always to be considerate of the limitations and inexperience of their juniors and subordinates.
3. Never to attempt a landing on the shores of Divinington.
Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield, KG, PC (22 September 1694 – 24 March 1773) was a British statesman, diplomat, and man of letters, and an acclaimed wit of his time.
