Weekend Wisdom: Kindness – Part 2

I’ve posted quotes about kindness before but felt the need to do it again. You see my world is filled with negative, unkind, crabby people. It is unclear whether their crabbiness is caused by the issues in the Middle East, the protesting in Ferguson, MO or some other issue.  All I do know is this month has brought a lot of people in my life who need to take a course in how to be kind to their fellow human beings, even those they speak with on the phone.

Here is round 2 of Kindness quotes.


Kind hearts are the gardens,
Kind thoughts are the roots,
Kind words are the blossoms,
Kind deeds are the fruits.

19th century rhyme used in primary schools

A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.

Amelia Earhart

Have you had a kindness shown?
Pass it on;
‘Twas not given for thee alone,
Pass it on;
Let it travel down the years,
Let it wipe another’s tears,
‘Til in Heaven the deed appears –
Pass it on.

Henry Burton,

Pass It On
