Kindness just is. You know when you bestow it on others, and you know when you receive it. There are no “conditions” no rules or regulations, no specific ideology, no reference as to where you’re from or who you are. Kindness just is.
Personally, I consider kindness to be a Universal Way of Being. It excludes no one, includes us all and there is never ever any doubt, about what kindness is.
When we’re kind, we are at our best. We are showing our love, care and concern for others besides ourselves. Here are a few words on the subject of kindness by some well known and admired individuals:
“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” – Lao Tzu
“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.” – Plato
“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.” – Henry James
“Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.” – Khalil Gibran
“You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.”– Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” – Mark Twain
“My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.” – Dalai Lama XIV
I think that sums it up nicely, lets all to kind to one another, it might go viral!
