Acts of kindness Quotes

Practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty

Ansel Adams

The beginning and end of Torah is performing acts of loving kindness.

Talmud

Few acts of kindness do as much to make the world a better place as when we choose to consciously bear our own meanness.

Guy Finley

Words of praise, indeed, are almost as necessary to warm a child into a genial life as acts of kindness and affection. Judicious praise is to children what the sun is to flowers.

Christian Nestell Bovee

The best portion of a good man\'s life - his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love.

William Wordsworth

The one and only test of a valid religious idea, doctrinal statement, spiritual experience, or devotional practice was that it must lead directly to practical compassion. If your understanding of the divine made you kinder, more empathetic, and impelled you to express this sympathy in concrete acts of loving-kindness, this was good theology. But if your notion of God made you unkind, belligerent, cruel, or self-righteous, or if it led you to kill in God's name, it was bad theology. Compassion was the litmus test for the prophets of Israel, for the rabbis of the Talmud, for Jesus, for Paul, and for Muhammad, not to mention Confucius, Lao-tsu, the Buddha, or the sages of the Upanishads.
