Sea Holly

Don’t flatter yourselves that friendship authorizes you to say disagreeable things to your intimates. On the contrary, the nearer you come into relation with a person, the more necessary do tact and courtesy become. -Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

Courtesy is a silver lining around the dark clouds of civilization; it is the best part of refinement and in many ways, an art of heroic beauty in the vast gallery of man’s cruelty and baseness. -Bryant H. McGill

Phlox

The true greatness of a person, in my view, is evident in the way he or she treats those with whom courtesy and kindness are not required. -Joseph B. Wirthlin

No one is more insufferable than he who lacks basic courtesy. -Bryant H. McGill

Courtesy is the one coin you can never have too much of or be stingy with. -John Wanamaker

The small courtesies sweeten life; the greater ennoble it. -Christian Nestell Bovee

Whatever happened to courtesy? What can be so urgent that you have to look down at your phone in the middle of a dinner conversation with people who matter to you? You can’t wait five minutes before staring at your phone? -Martin Cooper

Hollyhock

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

Liatris Gayfeather

Courtesies of a small and trivial character are the ones which strike deepest in the grateful and appreciating heart. -Henry Clay

Love In A Mist

Gratitude is the most exquisite form of courtesy. -Jacques Maritain

Coral Bells

I’ve met the Queen a couple of times, and she’s been delightful. In fact, I often find myself thinking: ‘What would the Queen do in this situation? Write a thank-you note? Yes, I’ll do that.’ She’s all about courtesy. -Jools Holland

Monkshood

Courtesy should be a continuous action, not something to be turned on and off like a faucet. -Anonymous

The grace of God is courtesy. -Hilaire Belloc

It’s not about the resources you have available. It’s about the resourcefulness you have within you. -Tony Robbins

Cornflower/Batchelor Button

The amount of satisfaction you get from life depends largely on your own ingenuity, self-sufficiency, and resourcefulness. People who wait around for life to supply their satisfaction usually find boredom instead. -William C. Menninger

Spirea

However desperate the situation and circumstances, don’t despair. When there is everything to fear, be unafraid. When surrounded by dangers, fear none of them. When without resources, depend on resourcefulness. When surprised, take the enemy by surprise. -Sun Tzu

Obstacles, of course, are developmentally necessary: they teach kids strategy, patience, critical thinking, resilience and resourcefulness. -Naomi Wolf

Lavender

…as your father, my instinct is to protect you … Other people will want to protect you too. But remember that you are not a damsel in distress, waiting for some prince to rescue you. Forget the prince. With your brain and your resourcefulness, you can rescue yourself. -Brad Meltzer

Fireweed

When you agree to collaborate, you agree to jump off a cliff holding hands with everyone, hoping the resourcefulness of each will insure that you all land on your feet. -Frank Gehry

Snapdragon

A very good case can be made, on moral as well as economic grounds, for a system in which the individual is required to stand on his own feet, not to lean on the state for handouts. Character, resourcefulness, capacity are formed and developed in struggle with obstacles, not in waiting passively for benefits from outside. -William Henry Chamberlin

Westerns aren’t about the gunfight, even though it has to be there at one point. It’s not what they’re about, at least the good ones. It’s about the drama. It’s about the resourcefulness of men and women. -Kevin Costner

I have always loved and avidly read the novels of Jack London, Jules Verne and Ernest Hemingway. The characters depicted in their books, who are brave and resourceful people embarking on exciting adventures, definitely shaped my inner self and nourished my love for the outdoors. -Vladimir Putin

“When the time has come, every leaf turns to face the sun!

It doesn’t know if it has to, but because the call has reached it:
Not knowing what to expect, it will, move slightly, twist patiently
and try to embrace whatever is coming!

It might be too strong, it might be too weak,
it also might just be perfect!”
― Akilnathan Logeswaran
