Worth the Time to Remine


“ Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use. ” ― Emily Posta

I posted this quote on LinkedIn On July 10, 2015.  Would you like to know why?  Well, I spend a lot of time on LinkedIn.  Unfortunately, I found LinkedIn, like other social networks, have their share of negative viewers.


Ah, the theatre, the theatre.  The internet has become a plethora of judgmental people that lurk around social networks with the intent to do more harm than good.  Do you think these bullies and trolls would be gutsy enough to act this way if they didn’t have that almighty computer screen to hide behind?  Maybe, maybe not, but some can play the villain’s role without a hitch.

“Those” and “they” are the ones that do not have any awareness of the sensitive feeling of others.  Perhaps, “they” just don’t care; and/or perhaps, their uncaring persona is a shield to hide their own sensitive feelings.

No matter what the reason, poor manners is growing in leaps and bounds.  It’s unfortunate that poor manners are even an option for discussion.  Isn’t it just as easy to be kind to someone, as it is to be unkind to a person?



I believe if we have an awareness of how we would like to be treated, then we would have some clue as to how to treat others. The earth is becoming atilt and not in an upward position.  We need to add weight to the positive side of the scale.  We need to bring back good manners!

It doesn’t matter how we do it or what fork we use, as per the quote.  But we need to do it!  Life it too short not to.

I posted the quote on LinkedIn as a reminder to remember good manners.  I thought it a worthy idea to reiterate the quote as its message needs to be heard now more than ever.



As Ellen DeGeneres states at the end of her show “be kind to one another”.

    It’s probably easier to be kind! And better for all concerned. But a surprising number of people only seem capable of feeling good about themselves when they’re putting others down.

    Yep, if you’re not going to be nice stay home and shut up.
