There’s a lot more to George Washington than just being the first president of the U.S. and a Founding Father: He’s an acute businessman, a dog-lover, and one of the most prolific letter-writers in history. In a podcast from The Living Hour, we look at one of Washington’s earliest works, “110 Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior in Company and Conversation,” which he wrote when he was only 16 years old.
These days, the words that Washington had written may seem out of touch to some people – with some saying that it was written for a time and place that did not exist anymore. However, most of the rules that were enshrined reveal a focus that people these days have lost. In particular, the rules call for a sacrifice of our own narrow self-interests for the good of other people. The rules indicate that as we respect others, and they too will give us self-respect and heighten our self-esteem.
Here are some of the things in our current lives that Washington’s rules would still apply.

He is also known to have cultivated hemp in his farmland.
