There are times that when truth and kindness conflict one ought to chose kindness, especially when a little honesty is better than a lot.
Leroy Jack Syrop
We do it because we can, 'cause we know how. We do it whether people remember us or not, in spite of the fact that there's no shiny reward at the end of the day…other than the work itself.
'Angel' from the TV series Angel (S5:E6)
When you don't tell people what you really think, you are not being kind. People cannot change and grow if all they get are insincere niceties.
Duane Alan Hahn
The kindness planned for tomorrow does not count for today.
I am unjust, but I can strive for justice. My life's unkind, but I can vote for kindness. I, the unloving, say life should be lovely. I, that am blind, cry out against my blindness.
Kindness can become its own motive. We are made kind by being kind.
Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.
There is something I call "entering into confluence with the heart" which is where you carry out a truly heart-based thought, feeling, action, words, etc… in a single-minded way where you lose awareness of your personal self and are wholly absorbed in freely expressing forth this love. If in the middle you become aware of what you're doing and go "gee look I'm being so loving right now" then that is ego hijacking the process. But if you can act purely without self-consciousness from a higher place within, getting into the flow, then you are in a way living as your REAL self.
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
It is one of the beautiful compensations of this life that no one can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.
Imagine what a harmonious world it could be if every single person, both young and old shared a little of what he is good at doing.
Kindness makes a fellow feel good whether it's being done to him or by him.
Frank A. Clark
Reversing your treatment of the man you have wronged is better than asking his forgiveness.
He that does good to another does good also to himself.
The duty of helping one's self in the highest sense involves the helping of one's neighbors.
A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.
When a person finds themselves predisposed to complaining about how little they are regarded by others, let them reflect how little they have contributed to the happiness of others.
You can accomplish by kindness what you cannot by force.
Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I’ve been taking Jarrow B-Right for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.
Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn’t bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can’t tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.
Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from surroundair.com. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.
Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground.
Hydrofracking is bad for you, your family, your friends, and the environment.
