Manual de moral y urbanidad - Introducción

Introduction
Dear friend:

I know that you’re good, but you’ll be even better if you read this book with love and attention.

It is dedicated to you with all my soul, with all the emotion of a teacher. I want you to be an example for those around you. I want you to be the biggest hope for the Fatherland, and therefore it is my deepest wish that you drink the crystal clear water of morality, religion and courtesy.

Morality is the science that teaches us the practice of good, for only then can we be honourable and happy.

Do good under all circumstances in life. Be good to yourself and everybody else.

Embellish your existence with virtue, for it will bring you happiness, which is a pure emotion; better said, a deep satisfaction which comes from doing good.

Religion bring you closer to God, and as you well know, no word exists in the human language to express his greatness.

Courtesy makes for a better education, for if you observe its rules you will come to better deeds, show better behaviour, have better manners.

At this crucial time, with a morality crisis at hand, I offer you this modest work wholeheartedly.

The writer.

Manual de moral y urbanidad #1 – Portada

The “Manual de moral y urbanidad” (”morality and courtesy manual”) is a little book I found in the attic at my parents’. My stepfather is Spanish and he was handed the book when he was in primary school, courtesy of El Caudillo and the catholic church. Because we are living in times of moral decay and also because I find it hilarious, I am offering you its pages without so much as considering paying one euro dime to the ones holding the copyright to it, including an English translation of the pearls of wisdom included in the book.

You’re welcome.

(Oh and yes, I have started publishing it on these pages several times in the past but somehow I never quite made it past the first ten or fifteen pages – there are 60 -. This time it’s for real, though. Honest, guv.)
