quotes about kindness

Be kind. If there is one thing that I would like to stress in light of the last couple of days and the days ahead, it is just to be kind to one another… be kind to everyone and here are ten quotes about kindness to remind you to do just that.

Quotes About Kindness

In my old neighborhood, there was an old man who was a widower. Nearly every day I would walk past his house walking my dog(s) and I always went out of my way to say hi and to check in on Mr. Murphy. And every day after talking to him he would thank me by saying… “Thank you for your kindness.”

Kindness is important, and Mr. Murphy knew that and just talking to him and taking the time to do that mattered to him and he appreciated it. For me it was a simple thing to do and no skin off my back and that is exactly what kindness is… it’s easy and damned near effortless so there is never an excuse for us to never be kind. Period.

And here are ten quotes about kindness that drives that point home…
