Solace in the Company of the Polite
We all realise the importance of practicing virtues and qualities in life, such as politeness, tolerance, and patience. Many of our problems and much of our sufferings are caused by a lack of politeness and false sense of pride.
An envious person cannot tolerate another’s achievements or growth. This happens because we forget our own unique identity and talents. We need no selfish motives. With the virtue of tolerance, we will be able to see wonders happening, not only in us but in others as well, because with tolerance we will automatically practice patience.
People always find solace and comfort in the company of polite people. They talk less, listen more and never argue unnecessarily in order to prove their point. This quality is generally not expressed in words but automatically manifests in one’s behavious. This vibrations of this quality are naturally and easily transmitted to others.
