Kindness and civility are two things that are lacking in our society today yet are desperately needed more than ever.
We can’t expect that we would agree with people around us on all things, but it is important to keep our manners, discipline, and civility.
One thing I learned in my life is that kindness and civility are free and rewarding. Mary Montagu said: “Civility costs nothing, and buys everything.”
It is important that we rebuild an atmosphere of forgiveness and civility in every aspect of our lives.
In his excellent book about Civility, P.M. Forni said “Civility means much more than being nice to one another. It is complex and includes learning how to connect successfully and living well with others, developing thoughtfulness, and fostering effective self-expression and communication. Civility includes courtesy, politeness, mutual respect, fairness, good manners, and is good for your health.”
