WITandWISDOM(tm) - March 18, 2002
Knowledge, ability, experience, are of little avail in reaching high success if courtesy be lacking. Courtesy is the one passport that will be accepted without question in every land, in every office, in every home, in every heart in the world. For nothing commends itself so well as kindness; and courtesy is kindness. - George D. Powers

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
"Blessed are they..."
By Ken Standly
Blessed are they who serve unselfishly,
for they shall be esteemed and honored.
Blessed are they who join with others to accomplish goals and dreams,
for they shall be rewarded with abiding love and friendship.
Blessed are they who listen,
for they shall be sought out and admired above all others.
Blessed are they who do not strive to dominate,
for they shall win everlasting cooperation, warmth, and companionship.
Blessed are they who do not use love and companionship for ulterior purposes,
for they shall be cherished as valued companions.
Blessed are they who do not look for perfection in others,
for they shall be accepted and loved.
Blessed are they who see potential in others,
for they shall be stimulating and attractive companions.
Blessed are they who settle differences as they arise,
for they shall keep relationships free from misunderstandings.
Blessed are they who refuse to look for slights,
for they shall feel loved and secure.
Blessed are they who help others help themselves,
for they shall be loved and admired as wise mentors.
