    Compassion That Leads To Solace

    5 years ago, as my wife lay dying in her bed from cancer, we made the hard choice of allowing hospice to inject her with the final dose of morphine that would leave her unconscious until she passed.

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

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.
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.
