 KINDNESS    SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT – AND PRACTICE

SOMETIME WE REAP KINDNESS because we sowed a little of it. I like the way one poet put it.

 

I have wept in the night

For the shortness of sight,

That to somebody’s need made me blind:

But I never have yet

Felt a twinge of regret,

For being a little too kind.

 

Anonymous, quoted in John Lawrence, Down to Earth

 

 

I LIKE MY SISTER’S simple, yet practical interpretation of kindness: Be nice to one another, just be nice. Say nice things to one another.

Charles Swindoll

 

DR. HARRY EVANS of Trinity College, Deerfield, Illinois, has a sign in his office that reads, “Kindness Spoken Here.”

 

AS GANDHI STEPPED ABOARD A TRAIN one day, one of his shoes slipped off and landed on the track. He was unable to retrieve it as the train was moving. To the amazement of his companions, Gandhi calmly took off his other shoe and threw it back along the track to land close to the first. Asked by a fellow passenger why he did so, Gandhi smiled. “The poor man who finds the shoe lying on the track,” he replied, “will now have a pair he can use.”

 

Kindness has converted more sinners than zeal, eloquence or learning.

Faber

 

Kindness is the golden chain by which society is bound together. Goethe

 

Wise sayings often fall on barren ground; but a kind word is never thrown away.
