Kindness

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
Aesop (620 BC – 560 BC), The Lion and the Mouse

The ideals which have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth. The trite subjects of human efforts, possessions, outward success, luxury have always seemed to me contemptible.
Albert Einstein (1879 – 1955)

There are no thanks for a kindness, which has been delayed.
Anonymous

Compassion is the basis of all morality.
Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 – 1860)

There is no duty more obligatory than the repayment of kindness.
Cicero (106 BC – 43 BC)

Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses.
Confucius (551 BC – 479 BC)

Recompense injury with justice, and recompense kindness with kindness.
Confucius (551 BC – 479 BC), The Confucian Analects

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
Ettiene De Grellet

Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness.
George Sand (1804 – 1876)

Sometimes when we are generous in small, barely detectable ways it can change someone else’s life forever.
Margaret Cho, weblog, 03-11-04

I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.
Tennessee Williams (1911 – 1983), A Streetcar Named Desire (1947)

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
The Dalai Lama (1935 – )

That best portion of a good man’s life,
His little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love.
William Wordsworth (1770 – 1850)

  5. Each one of us plays his own role
    On earth’s biggest stage as a whole
    but all throughout history
    The world’s greatest mystery
    Is what in the hell is the goal?

    An old man looking back on his life
    With all it’s trouble and strife
    Began to romance
    If in death he’d a chance
    Of discovering the meaning of life

    This old saying if well understood
    Will brighten your life as it should
    “Speak well of all others
    As if they were brothers
    As none of us are so very good.”

    If you follow this wise written line
    Your life should turn out to be fine
    You’ll find you cant miss
    By practising this
    ” A stitch in time saves nine.”

    On your happiness don’t shut the gate
    Life’s wrinkles can be made straight
    So, if you wake in the morn
    With a raging piss horn
    Just wank and your day will be great.
