'Manners make a man' is a true saying. By manners we mean proper and respectful behaviour towards all with whom we come in contact. Good manners come naturally to a person who is brought up in a cultured family. Good manners are, therefore, the sign that a certain person has been brought up on the right lines. Good manners are very necessary for progress in life. They help you to win the favour and confidence of others. They are a sure passport to success in life. An illmannered person, on the other hand, is disliked by everyone and has no chance of success in any walk of life he joins.
Good manners endear us to others. A polite answer turns away anger and a kind word uttered in time saves a man from many troubles. It is politeness which succeeds while ability fails. Even a good action will lose its value if the person doing favour utters impolite words.
Good manners are learnt early in life. A child born in a cultured family will learn to be respectful to others because he will see his elders behaving gently. A child born in an uncultured family will be disrespectful because he sees his elders behaving badly towards others. A child will learn whatever he is taught. So a little carelessness on the part of the parents is likely to spoil him and it will be difficult to reform him afterwards. A person should be polite to strangers so that they might have a good opinion about the person. While travelling one should observe the rules of the road. You should be kind and courteous to old men and ladies. While boarding a bus or a train you should see that you do not push your way in but take your turn. It is bad manners to break the queue or push oneself in without ones turn. 'Live and let others live' should be the motto of our life.

My mother saw a Dancing Bear
My mother saw a dancing bear By the schoolyard, a day in June The keeper stood with chain and bar And whistle-pipe and played a tune. The bruin lifted up its head. And lifted up its dusty feet, And all the children laughed to see It caper in the summer heat. They watched as for the Queen it died They watched it march. They watched it halt. They heard the keeper as he cried, “Now, roly-poly! Somersault” And then my mother said, there came The keeper with a begging-cup, The bear with burning coat of fur, Shaming the laughter to a stop. They paid a penny for the dance, But what they saw was not the show; Only, in bruin’s aching eyes, Far-distant forests, and the snow.
Which word in the poem rhymes with ‘show’?
How are show and snow related???
