Recently i came across this little article in a local paper.......it did not say who it was written by ..... but being a lover of words i thought what it had to say was so very true...
Remember there is no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.
Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses.
He who feels no compassion will become insane.
What do we live for if it is not to make life less difficult to each other?
Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestation of strength and resolutions.
One can pay back the loan of gold, but one dies forever in debt to those who are kind.
Constant kindness can accomplish much, as the sun melts, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust and hostility to evaporate.
How delightful is the company of generous people, who overlook trifles and keep their minds instinctively fixed on whatever is good and positive in the world around them.
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.
Don't wait for a funeral to pay a compliment. You may not make it in time.
You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
Wise words indeed, often we think kindly of someone or something they have done but we never actually tell them........remember my first post about what i wanted this blog to bring to people......it read......they may forget what you said but they will never forget how you made them feel and this is what kindness does to people ......ripples travel the world....... be kind to someone today and never look for what we can receive when we help someone, because we receive by the gift in our soul of how we feel when we give and that is something we want to keep and by coincidence that is what we just gave away...
