Courtesy

"Love does not behave itself unseemly."

This is love in society, love in relation to etiquette. Politeness has been defined as love in trifles. Courtesy is said to be love in little things, and the one secret to politeness is to love. You know the meaning of the word "gentleman." It means a gentle man - a man who does things gently, with love. The gentle man (or woman) cannot in the nature of things do an ungentlemanly thing. The ungentle soul, the incosiderate, unsympathetic nature, cannot do anything else.

Part 6 of 9

Courtesy is different than politeness, isn't it? I think it has a lot to do with motive. Another beautiful post!
