So please join my sweet pals Marydon at http://blushingrosetoo.blogspot.com/ and Sherry at http:countrywingsinphoenix/blogspot.com/. Also Nea at http://neabear.blogspot.com/ Laugh with us. Act goofy and please enjoy a few kindness quotes I am sharing here today as well:
A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.
Ask yourself: Have you been kind today? Make kindness your daily modus operandi and change your world.
Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.
I don't think Christmas is necessarily about things. It's about being good to one another, it's about the Christian ethic, it's about kindness.
It has always seemed strange to me... the things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.
It is only after one is in trouble that one realizes how little sympathy and kindness there are in the world.
The everyday kindness of the back roads more than makes up for the acts of greed in the headlines.
Today we are afraid of simple words like goodness and mercy and kindness. We don't believe in the good old words because we don't believe in good old values anymore. And that's why the world is sick.
You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It is impossible to treat a child too well. Children are spoiled by being ignored too much or by harshness, not by kindness.
