Good manners, in the best sense of the term, are outward manifestations of a kindly disposition. Any man or boy who really desires to make those around him happy, who tries to scatter sunshine, and who thinks, will acquire pleasant manners. It must not be forgotten that the kindly word and the considerate and cheering act are the result of thought as well as of feeling. The wise parents will not forget in training their children. The man possessed of good manners, succeeds better in business or in professional life than the man whose conduct and bearing are not pleasing.
