Kindness soothes another's heart
in ways that nothing else can

Kindness is the rarest and sweetest of gifts.

If only we could see the hurt and fear in others' hearts, how much gentler we would be. This quality heals. It soothes. It is always unexpected, and it always delights.

Think of your favorite people. Haven't they all been kind to you?

How important it is to be compassionate to children. Young children, especially, need words of understanding and encouragement. Looking back, we can all remember a favorite teacher and how confident and strong she made us feel.

And how important it is too, to be loving to the older people you meet. Often they are lonely, sad, and longing for another's touch or gentleness.

We imitate Christ well when we treat others with love. Sample these quotations, then be kind to someone tomorrow. God sighs in delight when he sees an act of kindness.

Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime.
Dale Carnegie

There is no greater loan than a sympathetic ear.
Frank Tyger

Kindness is more important than wisdom, and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom.

No one is living aright unless he so lives that whoever meets him goes away more confident and joyous for the contact.
Lilian Whiting

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Leo Buscaglia

Until you have learned to be tolerant with those who do not always agree with you--until you have cultivated the habit of saying some kind word of those whom you do not admire--until you have formed the habit of looking for the good instead of the bad there is in others, you will be neither successful or happy.
Napoleon Hill

Life's most urgent question is, what are you doing for others?
Martin Luther King Jr.

Kind words, kind looks, kind acts and warm handshakes, these are means of grace when men in trouble are fighting their unseen battles.
John Hall

Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.
