Kind

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Kind hearts are the gardens, Kind thoughts are the roots, Kind words are the flowers, Kind deeds are the fruits, Take care of your garden And keep out the weeds, Fill it with sunshine, Kind words, and Kind deeds.

Mark Twain

Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.

Frederick W. Faber

It is the power of making the world happy, or at least of so greatly diminishing the amount of unhappiness in it as to make it quite a different world from what it is at present. This power is called kindness. The worst kinds of unhappiness, as well as the greatest amount of it, come from our conduct to each other. If our conduct therefore were under the control of kindness, it would be nearly the opposite of what it is, and so the state of the world would almost be reversed.

Blaise Pascal

Kind words do not cost much. Yet they accomplish much.

Victor Hugo

A house is built of logs and stone, or tiles and posts and piers; a home is built of loving deeds that stand a thousand years.

Author Unknown

Do all the good you can, to all the people you can, in all the ways you can, for as long as you can.

Dale Carnegie

You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this world’s happiness now. How? By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely of discouraged. Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime.

Francis Fernandez

Charity unites, pride separates.

William Arthur Ward

A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

Mother Teresa

If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.

Francis De Sales

Be as gentle always as possible; and remember that you will catch more flies with a spoonful of honey than with a hundred barrels of vinegar. Such is the nature of the human mind; it rebels against severity, but gentleness renders it amenable to everything. A soft word appeases anger, as water extinguishes fire. No soul so ungrateful, but kindness can make it bear fruit. To speak truths sweetly is to throw burning coals, or rather roses, into a person’s face. How can anyone be angry with another who fights him with pearls and diamonds?

Mother Teresa

Never be so busy as not to think of others.

Booker T. Washington

In meeting men, in many places, I have found that the happiest people are those who do the most for others; the most miserable are those who do the least.

Plato

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.

Aesop

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

Mother Teresa

I would rather make mistakes in kindness and compassion than work miracles in unkindness and hardness.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

Mother Teresa

Kindness has converted more people than zeal, science, or eloquence.

Angela Merici

You will accomplish more by kind words and a courteous manner than by anger or sharp rebuke, which should never be used except in necessity.

Leo Buscaglia

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
