Kindness

In a such a forum as AO I thought a little excursion into the realm of "Kindness" would be worth the time.



You be the judge and if you have more to add by all means be my guest.



Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.

-Albert Schweitzer



Kind words do not cost much. Yet they accomplish much.

-Blaise Pascal



Kindness can become its own motive. We are made kind by being kind.

-Eric Hoffer



Kindness has converted more sinners than zeal, eloquence or learning.

-Frederick W. Faber



Kindness is the golden chain by which society is bound together.

-Goethe



Responsibility does not only lie with the leaders of our countries or with those who have been appointed or elected to do a particular job. It lies with each of us individually. Peace, for example, starts within each one of us. When we have inner peace, we can be at peace with those around us. When our community is in a state of peace, it can share that peace with neighboring communities, and so on. When we feel love and kindness towards others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.

-Dalai Lama



When you carry out acts of kindness you get a wonderful feeling inside. It is as though something inside your body responds and says, yes, this is how I ought to feel.

-Harold Kushner



Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others, cannot keep it from themselves.

-James M. Barrie



Kindness is more important than wisdom, and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom.

-Theodore Rubin
