The most telling measure of the meaning of kindness in life is memories of unkindness in our own: scenes from a childhood marked by the bullying of others, lack of appreciation for our efforts, sharp words, feeling ignored. There are places in each of us that have been scarred by real or perceived unkindness. “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”
May I be sensitive to the feelings of others.
Be aware of how your manner may be perceived by others. Make the effort to be respectful especially when you are busy or in a hurry.
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.
William Arthur Ward
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.
Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.
Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.
Never look down on anybody unless you’re helping him up.
Don’t be yourself — be someone a little nicer.
Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not.
When I was young, I admired clever people. Now that I am old, I admire kind people.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
