“It’s courtesy and kindness that define a human being‚ and a man.” – Marcus Aurelius
Exercising our choice to extend courtesy to others requires cultivating disciplined character. Showing others kindness, especially when we may have been wronged, is tremendously difficult. However it is also powerful. If we react with respect to challenging situations, how much more will we respect ourselves as a result. If we comport ourselves with courtesy for others we have made a powerful decision. We are exercising discipline, deciding that we are of strong character regardless of the world around us. Therefore, today show love to others. Do it for them. Do it for you.
