Time Enough for Courtesy

“Life is short, but there is always time enough for courtesy.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

For the grocery store cashier, the cab driver, the barista...

For the janitor, the waiter, the one who holds the door open for you...

...take time to be courteous. To know her name. To ask after his day, her wellbeing, his weekend plans.


These are small tokens of gratitude. And caring. And humanity.


Surely there is time enough for that.
