A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.
Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness.
George Sand (Amantine Aurore Lucile Dupin)
Those who make compassion an essential part of their lives find the joy of life. Kindness deepens the spirit and produces rewards that cannot be completely explained in words. It is an experience more powerful than words. To become acquainted with kindness one must be prepared to learn new things and feel new feelings. Kindness is more than a philosophy of the mind. It is a philosophy of the spirit.
Robert J. Furey
Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.
I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.
George Eliot [Mary Ann Evans]
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Anyone can look for fashion in a boutique or history in a museum. The creative explorer looks for history in a hardware store and fashion in an airport.
