kindness

A Quote by Leo F. Buscaglia on caring, compliments, honesty, kindness, life, listening, potential, and power

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on affection, beauty, compassion, delusion, desires, feeling, kindness, life, nature, rest, time, and universe

A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

A Quote by W.S. Gilbert on anxiety, culture, idleness, kindness, lies, meaning, mind, novelty, and plants

If you're anxious for to shine in the high aesthetic line As a man of culture rare, You must get up all the germs of the transcendental terms And plant them everywhere. You must lie upon the daisies and discourse in novel phrases Of your complicated state of mind, The meaning doesn't matter if it's only idle chatter Of a transendental kind.

W.S. Gilbert
