    Faith In Fellow Men

    Last week I was doing my grocery shopping at a local store. I was in a hurry because I had to get to work. I had purchased a package of sports drink and, when checking out, put it on the bottom of the cart. In my haste, I did not put it in my car when I emptied the cart. Later, I went back to the store and the...

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.
Anderson, Colatina - ES, Brasil

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"
Mhir, Philippines

Donna, FL

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.
Scott, Dallas

Love the whole concept of this site and its will.
