Politely means just following rules of good manners.
Q: politely ve graciously ve courteously arasındaki fark nedir?

Politeness: this is the act of “manners in motion “. We can be taught manners but never use them. So politeness is displaying manners. Being polite is the lowest rank of the three traits you mentioned because manners differ from country to country and culture to culture. While “XYZ” might be polite in Mexico, it might be considered rude in Japan.

Courteousness, in my opinion, is middle rank for similar reasons to politeness. When we talk about “ common courtesy (or courtesies) we again get into the grey area of cultures and countries ideas of “what is acceptable courtesies”. Having lived in different parts of the world and in the USA, I am shocked that everyone expects others to be courteous when they, themselves, seem blind to extending courtesies. Bottom line, for me, is that courtesy is the ability to politely make others comfortable.

Grace: I think this is the highest ranking trait of the three. Simply because it requires your entire being to exude grace and be graceful. Grace requires politeness and extending courtesies but it also requires being compassionate and kind.

...but this is my opinion.
