On occasion it is the kind thing to do, to dash someone's hope.  And sometimes it is just plain evil.

A Quote by Thomas Dekker on awaken, kind, courteous, purpose, wisely, weariness, love, joy, heart, and gentle

To awaken each morning with a smile brightening my face; to greet the day with reverence for the opportunities it contains; to approach my work with a clean mind; to hold ever before me, even in the doing of little things, the ultimate purpose toward which I am working; to meet men and women with laughter on my lips and love in my heart; to be gentle, kind, and courteous through all the hours; to approach the night with weariness that ever woos sleep and the joy that comes from work well done - this is how I desire to waste wisely my days.

A Quote by Nicole Marie Simon on perfect, kind, and girl

I'm not a perfect girl, my hair doesn't always stay in place, I spill things, and I'm clumsy, but when I take a step back and look at how great my life really is, then maybe I like being imperfect.

A Quote by Daphne Rose Kingma on generosity, grace, gracious, kind, give, giving, healed, and healing

Since we remember that we are really all part of one great soul, we can see our beloved as ourselves, and know that we can give without end, without harm. And we know we can give everything. We can give not only our material possessions but our words, our bodies, our insights, our time, our money, our empathy, our listening, and our compassion.

My own parents, married forty-seven years, always called one another "Dearie".  
"Dearie," one of them would call out. "What is it, Dearie?" the other would always respond, as if to say, Whatever you need, I will give it to you, whatever you ask, I will do it gladly. The antiphony of their "Dearies" was a sweet music that punctuated my young life. To me it meant that they saw one another as equal in spirit, and that in that great love they were always willing to serve one another. They called each other "Dearie" to their dying day.

Generosity is circle that returns unto itself. The more we give, the more we have. And in that state of generosity, willing spiritual sharing, we ourselves are healed.  For when are generous, we can see the vast abundance that is also there for us. This is true generosity because no one is excluded. We are drawn together, united by it. Through it we have a taste of union. It grants us ease and gives us the grace of knowing that life is more than an endless struggle. Indeed it is gracious, generous, and kind.
