Quotable Sunday #5




Another round of Quotable Sunday. I just love quotations. Bits and pieces of paper are strewn across my house with quotes written on them--things that I have come across in magazines or while reading and I just jot them down as I read. For about 10 years, I have been doing a monthly quotation page (if you are interested in this, you can check it out at my main site)

Anyway, this week's theme is KINDNESS :) Ready...here we go....

No kind action ever stops with itself.


One kind action leads to another.


Good example is followed.


A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions,


and the roots spring up and make new trees.


The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.
-Amelia Earhart

Be Kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
-Philo

We are never really happy until we try to brighten the lives of others.
- Helen Keller

Three things in human life are important.


The first is to be kind.


The second is to be kind.


The third is to be kind.
-Henry James

Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others,
cannot keep it from themselves.

-James Barrie

Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others,
cannot keep it from themselves.

This is one that reminds me that you never know what someone else is facing.
