Courtesy



Life is not so short but that there is always time enough for courtesy.

Be courteous to all, but intimate with few; and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.

It was one of the rules which, above all others, made Benjamin Franklin the most amiable of men in society: never to contradict anybody.

Always keep your head up but keep your nose at a friendly level.

The nice thing about people is that there are so many of them, and so many varieties. Anyone can find enough people with whom to be friendly, to work, and to share the riches of life on this wonderful planet.

I've learned that everyday you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

The value of friendly is beyond measure -- it costs nothing, yet it's worth a fortune. And it's the most contagious disease known to man -- catch it.

Be the perfect gentleman off the field and the ultimate competitor on the field.

Treat colleagues with respect. Give them credit for what they have accomplished. Deal with conflicts in a gentle, empathic way...hey, just be kind.

Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish one's growth without destroying one's roots.
