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.
A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.
People will never forget how you made them feel.
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being.
You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
Compassion is not weakness, and concern for the unfortunate is not socialism.
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
He who plants kindness gathers love.
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.
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.
How beautiful a day can be, when kindness touches it!
Carve your name on hearts, not on marble
How far that little candle throws its beams! So shines a good deed in a naughty world.
Something that has always puzzled me all my life is why, when I am in special need of help, the good deed is usually done by somebody on whom I have no claim.
Be the trouble you want to see in the world.
Treat the world the way you want to be treated.
Be the change you want to see in your networks
I came upon a doctor who appeared in quite poor health. I said, 'There's nothing that I can do for you that you can't do for yourself.' He said, 'Oh yes you can. Just hold my hand. I think that that would help.' So I sat with him a while then I asked him how he felt. He said, 'I think I'm cured.'
True compassion is not just an emotional response but a firm commitment founded on reason.
Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.
I think we need more love in the world. We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter. I definitely want to contribute to that.
A good character is the best tombstone.
