An Act of Kindness
Next to love, kindness is perhaps the greatest gift you can give to someone. It seems I’m not the only one who feels that in their bones.
For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.
It has always seemed strange to me… the things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.
A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.
William Arthur Ward
You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.
To practice five things under all circumstances constitutes perfect virtue; these five are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness, and kindness.
Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
Kindness, I’ve discovered, is everything in life.
Isaac Bashevis Singer
I feel no need for any other faith than my faith in the kindness of human beings. I am so absorbed in the wonder of earth and the life upon it that I cannot think of heaven and angels.
Pearl S. Buck
The everyday kindness of the back roads more than makes up for the acts of greed in the headlines.
The catch phrase for the day is ‘Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile.’
I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.
I think my favorite is Mark Twain’s quote. Which is yours?
