Stand up and make a difference


Politeness, good manners, consideration, and respect are not relics of an ancient past. On the contrary, those constitute the best investment you can make. They don't cost much and their return compounds at great speed.

Nobility of the soul expresses itself in many different forms. Sometimes it shows as the willingness to listen patiently to silly questions. Other times, it comes as the readiness to return a phone call from which no benefit can be expected.

Gratuitous acts of politeness denote a benevolent spirit. Respect for strangers is the trademark of a tolerant, open society.
Good manners are a trait of the highest sort of nobility.

Your kind disposition will benefit your family, friends, and neighbours. It will no doubt be of great help also to your customers, colleagues, and career. The greatest reward it brings, however, will not be for others, but for yourself. Nothing will reinforce your belief that there are still plenty of kind people in the world as being one of them yourself. Day after day.
