"At the Elms, good words and good actions make a great day!" OLE

Golden rule: "Do unto others as you want others to do to unto you!" Christianity

"Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use." Emily Post

I think the thing I miss the most in our age is our manners. It sounds so old-fashioned in a way. But even bad people had good manners in the old days, and manners hold a community together, and manners hold a family together; in a way, they hold the world together. Nancy Friday
