Were you raised to be polite? Many of us were and so saying thank you is second nature. We were taught to have good manners. Thank you is an essential characteristic of a good-mannered person. It’s the nice thing to do and it makes the other person feel good.
But what if saying thank you were good for something more. What if it were actually beneficial to you? This quote suggests that thank you has a deeper dimension. Using thank you could actually provide a spiritual benefit. And it just might make sense. Treating others with kindness may bring you closer to your own personal peace. There have never been more reasons to be polite.
