Acts of Kindness
"Always be a littler kinder than necessary." James M. Barrie
Do for others with no desire of returned favors. We all should plant some trees we'll never sit under.
"Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us daily." Sally Koch, American writer
Whatever our hands touch -
We leave fingerprints!
On walls, on furniture,
On doorknobs, dishes, books,
As we touch we leave our identity.
Oh please wherever I go today,
Help me leave heartprints!
Heartprints of compassion
Of understanding and love.
Heartprints of kindness
and genuine concern.
May my heart touch a lonely neighbor
Or a runaway daughter,
Or an anxious mother,
Or, perhaps, a dear friend!
I shall go out today
To leave heartprints,
And if someone should say
"I felt your touch,"
May that person sense Your love
Touching them through me.
"How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world." Shakespeare
"I wanted to do something. Anything, but didn't know what to do. So I did this. This is my something." Jason Watt (Shared by Cuban Peet)
"Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see." Mark Twain
Kindness is like snow - it will make beautiful everything it covers.
Kindness, like a boomerang, always returns.
"Look the world straight in the eye." Helen Keller
"Whatever comes from the heart carries the heat and color of its birthplace." Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
"When you are kind to someone in trouble, you hope they'll remember and be kind to someone else. And it'll become like a wildfire." Whoopi Goldberg, American Actress
"When you carry out acts of kindness, you get a wonderful feeling inside. It is as though something inside your body responds and says, 'Yes,, this is how I ought to feel.' Rabbi Harold Kushner
