It is a bad reasoning and makes us enemies of half the world. With the help of good manners, we can find entry into the heart of a person and cad therefore earns his love. Good manners are the best recommendations of a man.
One should be sympathetic towards the weak and old. Whenever we see an old’ person in need of a seat while travelling in a train or a bus, we should at once accommodate him.
Besides, when we are cycling and see an old man hesitating on a crossing, we should not cal him an old fool. Everyone must fall a prey to old age. Therefore, an old person must be given a room in the progressive society.

We should be humble and polite. Politeness costs nothing. It can win us many friends. Sweet words are essential for success in life. We should neither brag nor boast.
We should be obedient to our parents and teachers. We should be industrious. We should never remain idle at all.
We should be ready to help the needy. We should show courtesy to everyone. We should talk only as much as is necessary.

Good manners are also important when we are in the company of our friends or someone else. When we speak to anyone, we should speak clearly, distinctly and sufficiently loudly for the person to hear.
It is an insult to a person to ask his attention and then speak so that he does not understand. Besides we should speak the truth even though we have to face some obstacles. It takes two to speak the truth-one to speak and another to hear.
We should have all these good manners. They will help us to serve mankind in a better way. Thus good manners are an important limb of good conduct. Without them man has no place in a modern society.
