Gentleman

"This is the final test of a gentleman: his respect for those who can be of no possible value to him." -William Lyon Phelps

Powerful.  Be kind and nice to everyone.  I saw someone being rude just last night to a young man trying to deliver food.  I had a college professor who told a great story, the point was to know the names of everyone you work with, including the janitors.  Why not?  Recently, I saw a boss tell her employee not to be late in front of customers.  How humiliating.  I saw another boss shame a worker for not getting trash in a certain office.  Again, I heard the entire long conversation.  My heart went out to those workers.  Be nice, as my friend Candida says, God doesn't like ugly.  JMD
