Six essential qualities that are the key to success: Sincerity, personal integrity, humility, courtesy, wisdom, charity.
Dr. William Claire Menninger
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Among the qualities of mind and heart which conduce to worldly success, there is one, the importance of which is more real, and which is generally underrated in our day...It is courtesy.
A man may fight fiercely to hold his own in business; but he does not need to fight to get ahead of someone in the elevator, or up the car steps, or at the post office window. And no matter how strong competition is, business and personal courtesy make it easier and pleasanter for everybody.
William H. Hamby
A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.
Saint Basil the Great

Courtesy is meaningless if you let others mistreat you. Other values must take precedence in such case. This is not to say that you should stop being courteous.
Anon Imus, Los Angeles
De tudo o que recebemos, com certeza a cortesia deve ser passada adiante, porque todos precisa de todos, até quem nos odeia.
From everything we receive, surely the courtesy should be passed on, because everyone needs everyone, even those who dislike us.

You will know when one gives value to others when there is respect and courtesy. Ponder on this: "treat others how you want them to treat you"
Courtesy is respect for other peoples feelings in everyday situations that get us all tense. Take a step back and realize that whatever the problem is, rudeness will not help solve it.
All great values begin with respect and courtesy. Common courtesy seems to be the forgotten art in today's rush to the front of the line.
Love the whole concept of this site and its will.
