Thought for the Day

The word courtesy actually comes from the word "court." My dictionary defines courteous as "marked by polished manners, gallantry, or ceremonial usage of a court . . . marked by respect and consideration of others." To be courteous is to adopt the manners of the court, to treat one another like royalty."
