One who knows how to show and to accept kindness will be a friend better than any possession.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Only your compassion and your loving kindness are invincible, and without limit.
Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.
Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.
Smile at each other, smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other - it doesn't matter who it is - and that will help you to grow up in greater love for each other.
Robert Louis Stevenson
So long as we love we serve;/ So long as we are loved by others,/ I would almost say that we are indispensable;/ And no one is useless while they have a friend.
Stop the habit of wishful thinking and start the habit of thoughtful wishes.
Tell them, that, to ease them of their griefs,/ Their fear of hostile strokes, their aches, losses,/ Their pangs of love, with other incident throes/ That nature's fragile vessel doth sustain/ In life's uncertain voyage, I will some kindness do them.
Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.
