Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.
Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness.
Kindness is loving people more than they deserve.
Always stop to think whether your fun may be the cause of another’s unhappiness.
Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.
To make a difference in someone’s life you don’t have to be brilliant, rich, beautiful or perfect. You just have to care.
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.
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone.
Kindness in another’s trouble,
Courage in your own.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.
Your greatness is measured by your kindness; your education and intellect by your modesty; your ignorance is betrayed by your suspicions and prejudices, and your real caliber is measured by the consideration and tolerance you have for others.
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
Having a soft heart in a cruel world is courage, not weakness.
Kindness is a language the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.
