Sunday Citar - Kindness



Arthur Hughes - "Home from Sea"


Kindness in ourselves is the honey that blunts the sting of unkindness in another.
Grantland Rice

Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.
Lao Tzu

Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not.
Samuel Johnson

The Lao Tzu one is my favorite. As always, thanks for the inspiration. I'm off to think kind thoughts...

You know, it is so easy to be kind that it makes you wonder that there are unkind people in the world. Thanks for the quotes--it's a good reminder to ACT on those kind thoughts we have.

Have a relaxing day!

The painting is lovely and so are the quotes. I especially like the Rice quote - it always starts within us. Thanks Kelly. :)

That picture reminds me of my kids, always seeming to look out for the other one. Lovely! :O)

Oh that last one really hits home. I need to remember it more often - kindness even when fondness isn't present. Thanks, Kelly!

Wow, your blog has changed! Have I been away that long?

Oh these are so great and so important to remember!! If I can raise some kind kids I will feel that I did my job as a parent. Hugs!!

I needed to read this at this very moment. I'm dealing with an insufferable person right now and I needed a reminder that I can still opt to be kind. thank you.
