A Quote by Albert Einstein on ease, happiness, ideals, kindness, beauty, truth, motivation, ethics, and want

I have never looked upon ease and happiness as ends in themselves - the ethical basis I call the ideal of a pigsty.  The ideals that have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

To repay your kindness
The willow leaves
Scattered in the garden.

A Quote by Dean Koontz on virtue, evil, kindness, violence, and preservation

Living in the modern age,
death for virtue is the wage.
So it seems in darker hours.
Evil wins, kindness cowers.

Ruled by violence and vice
we all stand upon thin ice.
Are we brave or are we mice,
here upon such thin, thin ice?

Dare we linger, dare we skate?
Dare we laugh or celebrate,
knowing we may strain the ice?
Preserve the ice at any price?

Dean Koontz
