Kindness Quotes 1 - 2 - 3 - 4
There is a kindness that dwells deep down in things; it presides everywhere, often in the places we least expect. The world can be harsh and negative, but if we remain generous and patient, kindness inevitably reveals itself. Something deep in the human soul seems to depend on the presence of kindness; something instinctive in us expects it, and once we sense it we are able to trust and open ourselves.
John O'Donohue
From Benedictus: A Book of Blessings.

Kind words are short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
Mother Teresa

Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you - not because they are nice, but because you are nice.
Author Unknown

That best portion of a good man's life,
His little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love.
William Wordsworth

Kindness in women, not their beauteous looks, shall win my love.
William Shakespeare

Kindness is ever the begetter of kindness.
Sophocles

You cannot do a kindness too soon because you never know how soon it will be too late.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.
Dinah Craik

Live this day as if it will be your last. Remember that you will only find tomorrow on the calendars of fools. Forget yesterday's defeats and ignore the problems of tomorrow. This is it. Doomsday. All you have. Make it the best day of your year. The saddest words you can ever utter are, If I had my life to live over again. Take the baton, now. Run with it! This is your day! Beginning today, treat everyone you meet, friend or foe, loved one or stranger, as if they were going to be dead at midnight. Extend to each person, no matter how trivial the contact, all the care and kindness and understanding and love that you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.
Og Mandino

I was a secret treasure of kindness and generosity,
and I wished this treasure to be known,
so I created a mirror: its shining face, the heart;
it's darkened back, the world;
The back would please you if you've never seen the face.
Rumi

Kindness in words creates confidence, kindness in thinking creates profoundness, kindness in giving creates love.
Lao Tzu

If someone is too tired to give you a smile, leave one of your own, because no one needs a smile as much as those who have none to give.
Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch

The everyday kindness of the back roads more than makes up for the acts of greed in the headlines.
Charles Kuralt
On the Road With Charles Kuralt.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
Plato

Kind hearts are the gardens,
Kind thoughts are the roots,
Kind words are the flowers,
Kind deeds are the fruits,
Take care of your garden
And keep out the weeds,
Fill it with sunshine
Kind words and kind deeds.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Kindness can become its own motive. We are made kind by being kind.
Eric Hoffer

Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.
Mother Teresa

I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.
William Penn

How beautiful a day can be
When kindness touches it!
George Elliston

Shall we make a new rule of life from tonight: always to try to be a little kinder than is necessary?
James M Barrie
From, The Little White Bird.

If you were arrested for kindness, would there be enough evidence to convict you?
Author Unknown

Good men and bad men differ radically. Bad men never appreciate kindness shown them, but wise men appreciate and are grateful. Wise men try to express their appreciation and gratitude by some return of kindness, not only to their benefactor, but to everyone else.
Buddha

Kind words do not cost much. Yet they accomplish much.
Blaise Paschal

Through this toilsome world, alas!
Once and only once I pass;
If a kindness I may show,
If a good deed I may do
To a suffering fellow man,
Let me do it while I can.
No delay, for it is plain
I shall not pass this way again.
Author Unknown

Practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty.
Anne Herbert

I've never known any human being, high or humble, who ever regretted, when nearing life's end, having done kindly deeds. But I have known more than one millionaire who became haunted by the realization that they had led selfish lives.
B. C. Forbes

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
Aesop
The Lion and the Mouse.

You can gain more friends by being yourself than you can by putting up a front. You can gain more friends by building people up than you can by tearing them down. And you can gain more friends by taking a few minutes from each day to do something kind for someone, whether it be a friend or a complete stranger. What a difference one person can make!
Sasha Azevedo

The ideals which have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth. The trite subjects of human efforts, possessions, outward success, luxury have always seemed to me contemptible.
Albert Einstein

Compassion is the basis of all morality.
Arthur Schopenhauer

There is no duty more obligatory than the repayment of kindness.
Cicero

Through kindness, affection, honesty, truth and justice toward all others we ensure our own benefit - this is a matter of common sense.
The Dalai Lama

Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses.
Confucius
