Civility Costs Nothing

Civility means modesty. It implies good manners or courtesy. It is a great virtue. It has no exchange value. We are not required to incur any expenditure in order to obtain it. It stands for a code of conduct which conforms to the norms of etiquette that weave a behaviour pattern which is becoming of a gentleman. Thus it has to be cultivated in one’s character from an early age. Though it does not call for any pecuniary expenditure, it earns a great dividend. A man who is devoid of civility catches trouble at every step and makes a misery of his life. On the other hand, one who has added civility to his conduct is loved by every individual of society. He can get on smoothly and easily through all the thick and thin of life. Therefore, we should possess this invaluable virtue which cannot be reckoned in terms of monetary value.
