Curteisie

In a fascinating study of medieval life, I discovered the etymology of courtesy (curteisie).  It referred to "courtly," or  chivalrous behavior.  Knights were trained from early childhood to learn how to behave themselves in polite society.  To quote professor Robert Garland, PhD, "courtesy was the mark of a civilized, sophisticated, and moral man.  A man who promoted the virtues of truth and honor."  In a rush to educate our children in the academic disciplines, let's not ignore this critical virtue.  If we do, chivalry will be dead.
