How to be gracious

I find it fascinating that there are thousands of articles and books written on how to succeed and win, and so few on how to be a good person–even though the two are so intertwined.

This is a nice one:

So listen. Be attentive to what people say. Respond, without interruption. You always have time. You own the time in which you live. You grant it to others without obligation. That is the gift of being gracious. – Tom Chiarella
