Kindness is more important than wisdom, and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom.

Theodore Isaac Rubin

Kindness makes the difference between passion and caring. Kindness is tenderness, kindness is love, perhaps greater than love .... kindness is goodwill, kindness says "I want you to be happy." Kindness comes very close to the benevolence of God.

Randolph Ray

Kindness which is bestowed on the good is never lost.

Plato

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

William Wordsworth

Guillaume Apollinaire

Bryant McGill

There must be justice, not charity. Kindness is solitary. Compassion becomes one with him whom we pity; it allows us to fathom him, to understand him alone amongst the rest; but it blurs and befogs the laws of the whole. I must set off with a clear idea, like the beam of a lighthouse through the deformities and temptations of night.

Henri Barbusse

We cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed. As in filling a vessel drop by drop, there is at last a drop which makes it run over; so in a series of kindnesses there is at last one which makes the heart run over.

James Boswell

If you find yourself to be a sort of an abrasive type of person, perhaps you might try to be gentle, because the truth is that gentleness and kindness are a lot more powerful than we are led to believe. And if you are like this, and people are telling you it doesn't work, don't listen to them do what you know is right.
