We know from Newton's famous law that Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. It is said that it applies to all areas of life, force, behavior etc. When people behave good with other people, why can;t it be that they behave as courteous as the other person? I am a simple guy, I usually mind my own business, almost never speak rudely with people, give them utmost respect, avoid quarreling and the list can go on. Not to say that I'm perfect or behave perfectly, but a normal behavior which wouldn't attract trouble. But usually people won't respond with the same respect and behavior as I do. I do not expect this from the illiterate ones (They usually behave better), but expecting from the literate ones wouldn't be too much to ask is it?

yes boyuancy, this law of newton is generally true. if you give respect to others , you will get it back. Same is the case with love , anger and other feelings.

I must say that great topic to discuss, what i think is that Newton's law applies only to the bodies that have no emotions attach to them, We human beings are social animals, we always crave for praise, we always want to be happy, we doesn't want to be rude and that is what we expect from others although it is difficult to achieve same from others. Well hopes that Newton's law applies to our life also then the world is a better place to live on.

Yes, it has. Before we act, we should think first. In every action we made there is a corresponding consequences. Think before you act.
