♦ Education and Manners : Two Sides of One Coin ♦
It’s perfectly said by someone —
“A gentleman is not defined by the content of his wallet or the cut of his suit. He is defined by his manners and the content of his character.” -Anonymous
Therefore, rather than saying, education and manners are two sides of one coin, I would like to say that manners is education. And I’m not saying this metaphorically, it’s the fact.
Education doesn’t mean a large amount of knowledge on one or more subjects nor the number of diplomas, degrees and certificates you possess that can define how educated you are.
The word education is generally misunderstood. The person who has the ability to read and write is considered as educated. In fact, the term literate is more appropriate for such a person.
Any individual who has done masters in any field of science, commerce and literature, the term scholar, genius, learned or any other such adjective can be applicable to define his or her persona.
Now, the question arises if academic qualification is not education then what is education?
In my opinion, your manners to lead your life is education. Art of living is education.
When school, colleges, Gurukulas were not in existence, people were both educated as well as uneducated by their manners and etiquettes. You can acquire qualifications in any subject to make a living. Nothing wrong in being skilled in any of the fields of your choice to make money.
Qualification in any particular subject can make you a doctor, an engineer, a scientist, an industrialist, a manager, a lawyer, a chairman and so on. But it can not make you polite, kind and civil. It can not erase anger, jealousy, greed etc. from your heart. For this you have to educate yourself through moral values.
Any successful person can make money to buy all types of luxuries like an expensive cozy bed, mattress, food items, electrical appliances, attractive furniture, decorative pieces, royal vehicles etc. but not even a richest person in the world can buy sleep, hunger and happiness.
Your knowledge is judged by your mark lists or certificates you get after qualifying various exams and competitions set for it but education is judged by your behavior, gentility, the way you talk and walk and nevertheless your capability to solve the problems without getting panicked and losing your temper.
The simplest way to explain education is your manners. Education and manners are synonyms. Manners refine you. There are innumerable rich and successful people in the world but only those who have manners are appreciated and set an example for upcoming generations.
It’s not their wealth, magnificent palace or lavish lifestyle which is discussed by the people but their manners and behavior is talked about.
Being mannered is more beneficial than being rich and knowledgeable. I don’t mean to say that you shouldn’t be rich and a scholar. I am just talking about what is more important between being bright and mannered.
- Combination of knowledge and wisdom makes you adorable wherever you go.
- Be a millionaire but remain down to earth.
We all have heard innumerable true stories of many successful people. Let us divide them into two categories and observe the difference ourselves : —
- What happens when an ill mannered person becomes rich and successful?
- What happens when a mannered person becomes rich and successful?
The people in the first category after getting a little success and money in their life will be boastful, conceited, aggressive, impudent, insolent, egoistic and self – admiring. Wrapped up from toe to top in superiority complex such people invite unhappiness and misery for life time not only for themselves but also for everyone they meet. Not even the members of their own family feel comfortable and relaxed in their presence.
Their wealth and cosy fascinating surroundings cannot replace their lofty words and scornful attitude. People wait for their departure and feel happy in their absence.
On the other hand, the people in the second category after getting success and money in their life will emerge as polite, thoughtful, sympathetic, sober, compassionate, helpful, well behaved, sensible and rational individuals.
They automatically turn into philanthropists and play a pivotal role in the society by their deeds and speeches. Whatever they do and say, set examples to teach the importance of values.
They won’t be seen behaving arrogantly with anyone. Therefore, these are the individuals who can be called the real gems of society. Further generations remain indebted for the contribution they make for them to be inspired by.
If you are mannered you will be respectful to everyone irrespective of the academic qualifications you have. Manners matter.
Gain knowledge but don’t lose your sensitivity. Be aware of the feelings of others. Choose any profession of your choice but don’t ever forget to be a better human being. As all of us, first, are human beings and then doctors, engineers, advocates, lecturers and so on. First of all we are human, therefore developing human qualities is manners.
Manners can’t be taught. They are inbuilt.
Only we have to develop them to be a better personality. The hallmark to be an extraordinary person lies in your manners and attitude. Nobody will care for your beauty and richness if your manners are ugly. In the end I would like to conclude with the words quoted by Diana Mather —
“ Good manners are ageless, priceless and classless.”
Be mannered first as good manners are your wealth.
