A Quote by F. G. "Buck" Rogers on kindness and world

. . . the world is filled with the kind of customers who deserve the care and attention I advocate, and I'd be willing to jump through hoops to win and keep them.

A Quote by Brendan Behan on animals, food, kindness, laws, men, men and women, respect, society, value, and women

I value kindness to humans first of all, and kindness to animals. I don't respect the law; I have total irreverence for anything connected with society except that which makes the roads safer, the beer stronger, the food cheaper, and old men and women warmer in the winter, and happier in the summer.

In omni adversitate fortunæ, infelicissimum genus est infortunii fuisse felicem In every adversity of fortune, to have been happy is the most unhappy kind of misfortune.

A Quote by Bodhidharma on awareness, buddhism, fortune, freedom, good, heaven, hell, kindness, mortality, and power

A buddha is someone who finds freedom in good fortune and bad. Such is his power that karma can't hold him. No matter what kind of karma, a buddha transforms it. Heaven and hell are nothing to him. But the awareness of a mortal is dim compared to that of a buddha, who penetrates everything, inside and out.

Bodhidharma (c. 440 AD - 528 AD)

A Quote by Bob Bailey on kindness and trying

There are cases when a crowd should boo a player; like when it's obvious he isn't trying. But the kind of booing that gets me is when you're going bad and the fans get on you. It doesn't help. It never helps to get booed when you're trying.

A Quote by Blaise Pascal on good, kindness, men, people, soul, trouble, and words

Kind words do not cost much. They never blister the tongue or lips. Mental trouble was never known to arise from such quarters. Though they do not cost much yet they accomplish much. They make other people good natured. They also produce their own image on men's souls, and a beautiful image it is.

Blaise Pascal (1623 - 1662)

A Quote by Billy Graham on bitterness, circumstances, contentment, dependence, environment, failure, happiness, kindness, life, needs, peace, problems, relaxation, soul, success, tears, and worth

The happiness which brings enduring worth to life is not the superficial happiness that is dependent on circumstances. It is the happiness and contentment that fills the soul even in the midst of the most distressing of circumstances and most bitter environment. It is the kind of happiness that grins when things go wrong and smiles through the tears. The happiness for which our souls ache is one undisturbed by success or failure, one which will root deeply inside us and give inward relaxation, peace, and contentment, no matter what the surface problems may be. That kind of happiness stands in need on no outward stimulus.

A Quote by Bertrand Arthur William Russell on earth, kindness, people, and work

Work is of two kinds: first, altering the position of matter at or near the earth's surface relatively to other such matter; second, telling other people to do so. The first kind is unpleasant and ill paid; the second is pleasant and highly paid.

A Quote by Bertrand Arthur William Russell on facts, kindness, and universe

It can be shown that a mathematical web of some kind can be woven about any universe containing several objects. The fact that our universe lends itself to mathematical treatment is not a fact of any great philosophical significance.

Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)
