Virtue of the Week
“O people of God! I admonish you to observe courtesy, for above all it is the prince of virtues… Who is illumined with the light of
courtesy…hath indeed attained a sublime station.”
-Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 214
Courtesy is to be polite and to have good manners. It is to be considerate of others. It is a way of speaking and acting with people which
gives them a feeling of being valued and respected. “Please”, “Thank you”, “Excuse me”, and “You’re welcome” are courteous expressions
which let people know you appreciate them and care about their feelings. Courtesy brightens people’s lives. It helps to make life graceful.

Signs of Success
I am practicing courtesy when I…
Show others that I value and respect them
Remember to treat elders, parents, teachers, and children politely
Think about how my actions affect others
Eat, speak, and move graciously
Make requests instead of demands
Greet people with a smile.
I am courteous. I speak and act in gracious ways. I show others that I value and respect them.
