People treat you as you treat them

   One of the great lessons of life.  People treat you back in the 
   same way you treat them.  If you treat them politely they will 
   treat you politely.  If you treat them with warmth and kindness 
   they will treat you with warmth and kindness.  If you are 
   friendly to them they will be friendly to you.  On the other 
   hand if you treat them in an impolite, disrespectful or 
   unfriendly way they will treat you back in the same way.  You 
   almost always get back in the same coin that you give.  They 
   pick up your attitude and reflect it back to you.  Thus it 
   follows that if you wish to be treated with respect, politeness 
   and kindness you must treat others in that way.  If you wish 
   other people to like you then you must first like them.
