We are being at once wisely aware of our own frivolity if we avoid hitting and whacking and prefer 'striking' and 'smiting'; talk and chat and prefer 'speech' and 'discourse'; well-bred, brilliant, or polite noblemen (visions of snobbery columns in the Press, and fat men on the Riviera) and prefer the 'worthy, brave and courteous men' of long ago.J.R.R. Tolkien Being Courteous Sayings By J.R.R. Tolkien: We are being at once wisely aware of our own frivolity if we avoid hitting
Patience isn't simply waiting, it is caring enough about the situation and those involved to remain calm and courteous throughout the wait.Richelle E. Goodrich Being Courteous Sayings By Richelle E. Goodrich: Patience isn't simply waiting, it is caring enough about the situation and those involved to
The idea that I am a bad person or exhibiting poor character traits by my disdain for someone can be irrelevant and false. If I meet someone I immediately dislike, for what ever reason, but I am polite and courteous, helpful and pleasant then I have been polite, courteous, helpful and pleasant. This is not at all the same as then finding someone else to gossip with and verbalize my disdain for that person. It is certainly not the same as being outright rude to that person. What I have thought is of no consequence here. My actions show who I am, not my thoughts. The same can be said of the basic premise of being spiritual itself. If I seek to be spiritual and yet find no time in my life for reflection on what this should and does mean to me am I being spiritual at all? The actions we relate to as being spiritual are the natural outcome of such reflection in our lives. When we are true to our own sense of integrity we naturally find compassion for others.David Carlyle Being Courteous Sayings By David Carlyle: The idea that I am a bad person or exhibiting poor character traits by my
It is a dichotomous time where the younger generation is perceived as free. But smoking pot is not being free. Taking drugs is not being free. I feel that being courteous and telling your dad, 'I'm going to have a drink' with your dad saying 'give me one too' is cool. That's being freer, happier and nicer. But having issues and saying that 'I am my own person, I am moving out Mom!' is not. Yes, if your mom tells you to move out then that's being free.Shahrukh Khan Being Courteous Sayings By Shahrukh Khan: It is a dichotomous time where the younger generation is perceived as free. But smoking
I pride myself on being courteous to people, and trying to fashion good relations.John Bercow Being Courteous Sayings By John Bercow: I pride myself on being courteous to people, and trying to fashion good relations.
If someone's being less than courteous to you, I don't think you need to pay any attention to them.Elizabeth Gillies Being Courteous Sayings By Elizabeth Gillies: If someone's being less than courteous to you, I don't think you need to pay
A great man who is vicious will only be a great doer of evil, and a rich man who is not liberal will be only a miserly beggar; for the possessor of wealth is not made happy by possessing it, but by spending it - and not by spending as he please but by knowing how to spend it well. To the poor gentleman there is no other way of showing that he is a gentleman than by virtue, by being affable, well-bred, courteous, gentle-mannered and helpful; not haughty, arrogant or censorious, but above all by being charitable ... and no one who sees him adorned with the virtues I have mentioned, will fail to recognize and judge him, though he know him not, to be of good stock.Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra Being Courteous Sayings By Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra: A great man who is vicious will only be a great doer of evil, and
Men don't know enough about being courteous toward women. You should get into a cab before a woman so she doesn't have to slide across the seat. And you should always go first into a revolving door so she doesn't have to push - unless it's moving, then let her go first.Thom Browne Being Courteous Sayings By Thom Browne: Men don't know enough about being courteous toward women. You should get into a cab
The poor gentleman has no way of showing that he is a gentleman but by virtue, by being affable, well-bred, courteous, gentle-mannered, and kindly, not haughty, arrogant, or censorious, but above all by being charitable; for by two maravedis given with a cheerful heart to the poor, he will show himself as generous as he who distributes alms with bell-ringing, and no one that perceives him to be endowed with the virtues I have named, even though he know him not, will fail to recognise and set him down as one of good blood; and it would be strange were it not so; praise has ever been the reward of virtue, and those who are virtuous cannot fail to receive commendation.Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra Being Courteous Sayings By Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra: The poor gentleman has no way of showing that he is a gentleman but by
He conveyed a strange impression of being in safety, and completely secure. He had a courteous little manner with him, and smiled and nodded, as I pointed out the hills and the tall trees to him, as if he were interested in everything, and incapable of surprise at anything. I wondered if this consistency was produced by an entire ignorance of the evil of the world, or by a deep knowledge and acceptance of it.Karen Blixen Being Courteous Sayings By Karen Blixen: He conveyed a strange impression of being in safety, and completely secure. He had a
Don't just show kindness in passing or to be courteous. Show it in depth, show it with passion, and expect nothing in return. Kindness is not just about being nice; it's about recognizing another human being who deserves care and respect.Colin Powell Being Courteous Sayings By Colin Powell: Don't just show kindness in passing or to be courteous. Show it in depth, show
The law of the [Cub Scout] pack guides the boys to move in the direction of being helpful, friendly, courteous, trustworthy and promote qualities which parents and the community are looking for. The whole purpose of scouting is to help the children grow up making good decisions in life.John C. Maxwell Being Courteous Sayings By John C. Maxwell: The law of the [Cub Scout] pack guides the boys to move in the direction
Alysandir is a fine horseman," Isobella said. He was about to dismount, and she stepped upon a stool to get a better view. Just as she did so, he glanced toward the window in her direction. Sybilla gasped and brought her hand to her chest with an open-mouthed amazement. "Did ye see that?" Isobella did not want to be singled out, so she replied, "He was just being courteous." "Nae. He recognized ye in front of all and sundry," she said, with a shy smile that made her lovely grey-blue eyes shine as brilliantly as the golden locks of her hair braided on top of her hair. " I don't know why. I've been nothing but a thorn in his side." "That isn't what Alysandri said," Sybilla replied. "He was most full praise about ye." Isobella glanced at Sybilla, who smiled innocently, which was her way of letting her visitor know that that was all she was going to say on the subject.Elaine Coffman Being Courteous Sayings By Elaine Coffman: Alysandir is a fine horseman," Isobella said. He was about to dismount, and she stepped
Righteousness - true holiness - is seen over time in our persistence. It is relatively easy to "flirt" with righteousness - being occasionally courteous to other drivers (if you happen to be in a good mood), helping someone in need by opening the door for them (if you have time), throwing a few extra bucks into the offering plate (as long as you won't miss them). But this behavior is in reality superficial righteousness. The righteousness God seeks is a persistent righteousness, a commitment to continue making the right decision even when, perhaps hourly, you feel pulled in the opposite direction.Gary L. Thomas Being Courteous Sayings By Gary L. Thomas: Righteousness - true holiness - is seen over time in our persistence. It is relatively
But we came for the Kennedy Center Awards, which was an incredible honor. Being a British person, I was bestowed this honor. And my partner and I, David, came. And we were so pleasantly surprised by George Bush and his knowledge of AIDS. He really - he treated David and I - and Laura - treated us like - they were so friendly and so courteous.Elton John Being Courteous Sayings By Elton John: But we came for the Kennedy Center Awards, which was an incredible honor. Being a
Being on time to appointments and meetings is a phase of self-discipline and an evidence of self-respect. Punctuality is a courteous compliment the intelligent person pays to his associates.Marvin J. Ashton Being Courteous Sayings By Marvin J. Ashton: Being on time to appointments and meetings is a phase of self-discipline and an evidence
Today we have to learn all over again that love for the sinner and love for the person who has been harmed are correctly balanced if I punish the sinner in the form that is possible and appropriate. In this respect there was in the past a change of mentality, in which the law and the need for punishment were obscured. Ultimately this also narrowed the concept of law, which in fact is not only just being nice or courteous, but is found in the truth. And another component of the truth is that I must punish the one who has sinned against real lovePope Benedict XVI Being Courteous Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: Today we have to learn all over again that love for the sinner and love
There are people who have an image of me as being rude and inconsiderate. But I'm completely the opposite, because I was raised not to be. I might have been tripping over myself drunk, but I was always courteous.Slash Being Courteous Sayings By Slash: There are people who have an image of me as being rude and inconsiderate. But
We can lay down our lives for those we love not by physically dying for them but rather by living for them - giving of our time; always being present in their lives; serving them; being courteous, affectionate, and showing true love for those of our family and to all men - as the Savior taught.Claudio R.M. Costa Being Courteous Sayings By Claudio R.M. Costa: We can lay down our lives for those we love not by physically dying for
Fairytales teach children that the world is fraught with danger, including life-threatening danger; but by being clever (always), honest (as a rule, but with common-sense exceptions), courteous (especially to the elderly, no matter their apparent social station), and kind (to anyone in obvious need), even a child can succeed where those who seem more qualified have failed.
And this precisely what children most need to hear.
To let them go on believing that the world is safe, that they will be provided for and achieve worthwhile things even if they remain stupid, shirk integrity, despise courtesy, and act only from self-interest, that they ought to rely on those stronger, smarter, and more able to solve their problems, would be the gravest disservice: to them, and to society as a whole.

J. Aleksandr Wootton Being Courteous Sayings By J. Aleksandr Wootton: Fairytales teach children that the world is fraught with danger, including life-threatening danger; but by
Was he joking? Was he being sarcastic? Aggressive? Impertinent? Or just courteous? There was no telling from his impassive face. What a country, he thought despairingly. In Russia you always knew. If a man made a stern face he was threatening; if he was laughing uproariously, he was joking.George Mikes Being Courteous Sayings By George Mikes: Was he joking? Was he being sarcastic? Aggressive? Impertinent? Or just courteous? There was no
Link is a quiet man to meet- easy and courteous. His music, though, betrays that deep inside he gets very very mean very often. I remember being made very uneasy the first time I heard Rumble , and yet very excited by the guitar sound. And his voice! He sounds like a cross between Jagger and Van Morrison, even sometimes like Robbie Robertson. We met him in New York in 1970 while recording Who's Next ... this later inspired the b-side Wasp Man, a tune we dedicated to Link Wray.Pete Townshend Being Courteous Sayings By Pete Townshend: Link is a quiet man to meet- easy and courteous. His music, though, betrays that
Many men fail because they do not see the importance of being kind and courteous to the men under them. Kindness to everybody always pays for itself. And, besides, it is a pleasure to be kind.Charles M. Schwab Being Courteous Sayings By Charles M. Schwab: Many men fail because they do not see the importance of being kind and courteous
As a former waitress myself, I know firsthand how a simple smile from someone can improve your day and how a single harsh word can destroy it. Being courteous and thoughtful costs you nothing and can sometimes pay you dividends in unexpected ways.Susanna Kearsley Being Courteous Sayings By Susanna Kearsley: As a former waitress myself, I know firsthand how a simple smile from someone can
She had received ideas which disposed her to be courteous and kind to all, and to pity every one, as being less happy than herself.Jane Austen Being Courteous Sayings By Jane Austen: She had received ideas which disposed her to be courteous and kind to all, and
