According to Inazō Nitobe, at the centre of Politeness is modesty, compliance and respect for others’ feelings. It imparts grace onto manners and acts as an elegant expression of sympathy. That is, Politeness requires one to ‘weep with those who weep and rejoice with those who rejoice’. Practised in its highest form, the virtue of Politeness ‘approaches love’.
