George Washington’s Rules of Civility

  • It is good manners to prefer them to whom we speak before ourselves, especially if they be above us with whom in no sort we ought to begin.
  • Strive not with you superiors in argument, but always submit your judgement to others with modesty.
  • Undertake not to each your equal in the art himself professes, it savors of arrogance.
  • Do not express joy before one sick or in pain, but that contrary passion will aggravate his misery.

Quotes by Mother Teresa

“One of the realities we’re all called to go through is to move from repulsion to compassion and from compassion to wonderment.”

“We cannot give what we have not got.”

“If we are humble, nothing will change us, neither praise, nor discouragement.”

“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. Life is beauty, admire it. Life is a dream realize it.”

“Do not allow yourselves to be disheartened by any failure as long as you have done your best.”
