You may never know how that random kindness changed someone’s day, just that it did
Today, as you may know, is Random Acts of Kindness Day, and as far as celebratory days go, this one isn’t bad at all.
There’s no disputing the fact that someone doing something kind, no matter how big or small, can really change your whole day. But it goes beyond that. Doing that act of kindness, being on the giving end rather than the receiving end, is incredibly therapeutic for the soul.
It’s no wonder, then, that some of the world’s most inspirational people, now and in the past, have quotes of kindness attributed to them. Here are some of my favorites.
“My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness” ~ Dalai Lama
“What wisdom can you find that is greater than kindness?” ~ Jean Jacques Rousseau
“A warm smile is the universal language of kindness” ~ William Arthur Ward
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted” ~ Aesop
“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless” Mother Teresa
“Kindness is the language the deaf can hear, and the blind can see” ~ Mark Twain
