Does courtesy exist?

Does courtesy exist?
Quote of the day
‘Human beings are designed to live in harmony and to exercise courtesy to each other in a polite and gentle manner. Today, our greediness and competitiveness has made us ignore basic human qualities, as a result courtesy is slowly fizzling away.’
Dear friends, how can we call ourselves friends when we cannot exercise courtesy? How can we live with anger when we need each other to survive? Our existence is only possible because 7 billion other people already exist each designed to love rather than hate, each designed to live in harmony rather than in discord and each designed to serve rather than to have the nerve not to serve. One of the reasons why courtesy is slowly fizzling away is because we have become too obsessed with materialistic desires. We want to have everything even if it means hurting someone in the process. We forgot basic manners that promote a sense of comfort and happiness. Road rage is a typical example of human beings in a hurry and willing to stop at nothing to get to their destination. They break all the rules of The Highway Code and think nothing of it. People are disgruntled in queues, people are discontented with their jobs, people refuse to smile and people can hurt your feelings too. Where has it all gone wrong? Can you become successful by being discord in all of your ways? Can you live to 100 years of age knowing that others despise you for your rudeness? Success and Courtesy go hand in hand. Without courtesy you will never be successful. Courtesy expands the horizon of true friendship. Courtesy explores the mind-set of human beings. Courtesy is the framework to exist, subsist and assist. Courtesy is a science of caring, sharing and remaining fair. Courtesy must be exercised on a daily basis. Courtesy has no barriers. Courtesy is an art that needs to be cultivated. It is a process of exercising civility. A person that is courtesy is often regarded as gracious. A courteous person does not swear. A courteous person goes the extra mile and always delivers a smile. Are you courteous? Do you lack the qualities so prescribed and if so are you willing to unleash your hidden potential and exhibit courtesy from now on? In order to become successful and remain successful you need to be courteous, period. Let us rekindle the glow of the human spirit. Let us not live with animosity and let us develop the patience and understanding in dealing with varying situations each day. The world is our paradise, let us work together in harmony to maintain it.
