A part of kindness consists in loving people more than they deserve.
isn’t about solutions. It’s about giving all the love that you’ve got.
Barbara De Angelis
Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference.
They bless the one that receives them, and they bless you, the giver.
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For poise, walk with the knowledge

Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.

Always be a little kinder than necessary.
You can cultivate mercy when you extend acts of compassion
and kindness to yourself and to other people.
It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.
Kind words are short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
Kindness and politeness are not overrated at all. They’re underused.
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.
