It’s nice to be important but it’s more important to be nice.
Every sunrise is an invitation for us to arise and brighten someone’s day.
The unfortunate need people who will be kind to them; the prosperous need people to be kind to.
If we can’t turn the world around we can at least bolster the victims.
For the cause that lacks The wrong that needs resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that I can do.
There’s no dearth of kindness In this world of ours; Only in our blindness We gather thorns for flowers.
Let not the fierce sun dry one tear of pain before thyself hast wiped it from the sufferer’s eye.
Life is mostly froth and bubble; two things stand like stone: kindness in another’s trouble, courage in our own.
That best portion of a good man’s life, His little nameless, unremembered acts Of kindness and of love.
If I knew… that a man was coming to my house with the conscious design of doing me good, I should run for my life.
