Quotation of the day: Mark Twain (1835-1910)

Good breeding consists in concealing how much we think of ourselves and how little we think of the other person.

This is what I think about this:

‘Listening to others is an effective way of learning more about their  problems. That will make one think about their own problem, in comparison: Now we have an internal dialogue, that externalize and brings about core feelings that we all have in out make, such as true interest, compassion, motivation to help.  So what may start as ‘good breeding’ may end up being a very healthy way to value your own true needs, and wants, when balanced against of those of others.
Of course it all is , like everything else relative, in an ever dynamically relative perception of the evolving reality.’ ©
