About Kindness

“Never look down on anybody unless you’re helping him up.” 

~Jesse Jackson


“A fellow who does things that count, doesn’t usually stop to count them.” 

~Albert Einstein ( a variation)


“Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not.”

~Samuel Johnson


How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong.  Because someday in your life you will have been all of these. 

~George Washington Carver


“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”



“Six essential qualities that are the key to success: Sincerity, personal integrity, humility, courtesy, wisdom, charity.”

~William Menninger


“Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.”

~Albert Schweitzer


“When you have once seen the glow of happiness on the face of a beloved person, you know that a man can have no vocation but to awaken that light on the faces surrounding him; and you are torn by the thought of the unhappiness and night you cast, by the mere fact of living, in the hearts you encounter.”

~Albert Camus


“No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.”

~Amelia Earhart
