    What is the difference between "kindness" and "courtesy" or "politeness"?

    This a.m. on Twitter I noticed one tweet that equated being 'kind' with being 'polite'.  Do you think there IS a difference, and if so, what do you see as the distinctions?

    Cortesy and politeness are social suggestions, kindness is personal. A person can choose to adhere to any standard, the choice to be kind is an inward thing.
