"Pre-filled" text in each new message

In every new message, I would always like to remind myself of certain principles before sending them out (e.g. brief, concise, coureous etc). While I could start with that template and manually delete these lines later, I'm afraid I might forget and accidentally send them out too.

Is there any way I can have these "instructions" appear every time I write a new email, and it disappears (or does not even appear) when I send the email to others?

Thank you.

Actually, a macro button won't gain you anything over just typing it in then double or triple click to select all.
