CIVILITY QUOTATIONS
“Gratitude is the beginning of civility, of decency and goodness, of a recognition that we cannot afford to be arrogant. We should walk with the knowledge that we will need help every step of the way.”

Gordon B. Hinckley

“Make living your life with absolute integrity and kindness your first priority.”

Richard Carlson

“Civility is the art and act of caring for others.”

Deborah King

“Don't ever forget that you're a citizen of this world, and there are things you can do to lift the human spirit, things that are easy, things that are free, things that you can do every day: civility, respect, kindness, character.”

Aaron Sorkin

“Practice civility toward one another. Admire and emulate ethical behavior wherever you find it. Apply a rigid standard of morality to your lives; and if, periodically, you fail as you surely will, ­adjust your lives, not the standards. ”

Ted Koppel

“Genuine tolerance does not mean ignoring differences as if differences made no difference. Genuine tolerance means engaging differences within a bond of civility and respect.”

Richard John Neuhaus

“Don't try to be perfect; Just be an excellent example of a human being.”

I am grateful to those who fought for more studies and better working conditions, so I want to exercise your right to civil so expensive for those who have suffered for it.

Civility is the kindness one encounters in the building up of a society;The lack of it is found in the destruction of one.
