I shall pass this way but once; any good that I can do or any kindness I can show to any human being; let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

I like this quote because it teaches people not to defer any act of kindness, whether it be in word, in kind or action to do it now...for the person for whom it was meant may not be there when you choose to do or may neither you may be there to do it. Don't postpone acts of kindntesses, do it now
