How far you go in life depends on you being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the strong. Because someday in life, you will have been all of these.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough.
Hungry not only for bread - but hungry for love. Naked not only for clothing - but naked for human dignity and respect. Homeless not only for want of a room of bricks - but homeless because of rejection.
I am a big believer that eventually everything comes back to you. You get back what you give out.
I am certain of nothing but of the holiness of the hearts affection, and the truth of the imagination.
I have made a ceaseless effort not to ridicule, not to bewail, not to scorn human actions, but to understand.
George MacDonald, Scottish Author and Poet
If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give.
If there is any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not deter or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.
If you light a lamp for somebody, it will also brighten your path.
