Courteous

Francis de Sales

Some say it is unreasonable to be courteous and gentle with a reckless person who insults you for no reason at all. I have made a pact with my tongue not to speak when my heart is disturbed.

St. Basil

A tree is known by its fruit; a man by deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

Jacques Maritain

Gratitude is the most exquisite form of courtesy.

Angela Merici

You will accomplish more by kind words and a courteous manner than by anger or sharp rebuke, which should never be used except in necessity.
