|A bit of fragrance always clings to the hand
that gives roses.
There is one word which may serve as a rule of practice for
all one's life - reciprocity.
The kindest word in all the world is the unkind word, unsaid.
Open your heart - open it wide; someone is standing outside.
During my second year of nursing school our professor gave us
a quiz. I breezed through the questions until I read the last
one: 'What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?'
Surely this was a joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several
times, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper,
leaving the last question blank. Before the class ended, one
student asked if the last question would count toward our grade.
'Absolutely,' the professor said. 'In your careers, you will
meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention
and care, even if all you do is smile and say hello.' I've never
forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
When I was young, I admired clever people. Now that I am old,

Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your
face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness.
Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone,
Kindness in another's trouble,
Courage in your own.
Adam Lindsay Gordon
You can't live a perfect day without doing something for someone
who will never be able to repay you.
Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes
in rebirth or not, there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate
kindness and compassion.
By swallowing evil words unsaid, no one has ever harmed his
Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will
never find out.
Frank A. Clark
My true religion is Kindness.
Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not.
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.
A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not
a nice person.
The kindness I have longest remembered has been of this sort,
the sort unsaid; so far behind the speaker's lips that almost
it already lay in my heart. It did not have far to go to be
Henry David Thoreau
If we cannot be clever, we can always be kind.
Love someone who doesn't deserve it.
The first thing a kindness deserves is acceptance, the second,
Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep
it from themselves.
James M. Barrie
Kindness is wisdom.
Philip James Bailey
Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice
melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility
How far that little candle throws his beams!
So shines a good deed in a naughty world.
The Merchant of Venice.
Always be a little kinder than necessary.
James M. Barrie
Deeds of kindness are equal in weight to all the commandments.
When kindness has left people, even for a few moments, we become
afraid of them, as if their reason had left them.
Willa Sibert Cather
I must be cruel only to be kind.
