Observance/Courtesy is the good habit of a man who recognizes the inherent dignity of every soul and treats others with respect by being cordial, polite, chivalrous, and practicing good manners which seeks not to offend the rightful peace of others. The man who lives with Observance/Courtesy experiences happiness as he seeks to make others comfortable and receives many positive responses from others in return. 

The opposing vices of Observance/Courtesy include the bad habit of Rudeness which disregards and disrespects others acts by callous words and behaviors which purposefully or ignorantly rejects the accepted customs of manners and behaviors of society. The Rude man is small and bitter, experiencing life as constant conflict, perhaps even taking perverse pleasure in agitating others.
