Kindness

I'm ending the week with these quotes about kindness. The world would be much better place if we could all remember to be kind to one another.

The kindest word in all the world is the unkind word, unsaid.

Make it a practice to judge persons and things in the most favorable light at all times and under all circumstances.

~Saint Vincent de Paul

The best way to knock the chip off your neighbor's shoulder is to pat him on the back.

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.

~Og Mandino


One man cannot hold another man down in the ditch without remaining down in the ditch with him.

~Booker T. Washington


Love someone who doesn't deserve it.

~Author Unknown
