Chapter 11, Page 10, Book 17

Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse. 

Henry Van Dyke

Today I’m thankful for kindness

In this world we must help one another. 

Jean de La Fontaine

Kindness is a value that many of us still believe in. It is the language of respect and consideration.  In a world obsessed with 'getting my way', kindness seeks the good of others.

Kindness Is a Simple Gift.

There is no cost or price in being kind as it comes from each of us deep within our soul.  When we give the gift of kindness, we're choosing to be the best version of ourselves.

He who plants kindness gathers love.

 Saint Basil

Something gets under your skin and sinks deep in your heart when you give the gift of kindness. Then, you realize it's actually a gift back to you.  Kindness can bring a sense of richness and fulfilment to our lives.

When you carry out acts of kindness you get a wonderful feeling inside. It’s as though something inside responds and says, yes, this is how I ought to feel.

Harold Kushner

Kindness and a simple smile can really make a difference!

Absolutely! Being kind doesn't have to cost us a cent, but the rewards are priceless, both for us and for the recipient. And if we're lucky, it's contagious!

"A healthy attitude is contagious, but don't wait to catch it from somebody else. Be a carrier." (another one of the bazillion quotes I've accumulated... author unknown)

Kindness is a simple act that should be used more often by people. It really does make a world of difference.

showing kindness brings it back home to you. "Something gets under your skin and sinks deep in your heart when you give the gift of kindness. "
