Have a kind Christmas!

A holiday gift to you:  

from Kerry’s Collection of Kind Christmas Quotes:

“My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.”
– The Dalai Lama

“Be the change you want to see in the world.”
– Mohandas Gandhi

“It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.”
– Kahil Gibran

“Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person. “
– Mother Teresa.

“Kind words can be short and easy to speak but their echoes are truly endless.”
– Mother Teresa

“I am done with great things and big plans, great institutions and big success. I am for those tiny, invisible loving human forces that work from individual to individual, creeping through the crannies of the world like so many rootlets, or like the capillary oozing of water, which, if given time, will rend the hardest monuments of pride.”
– William James

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?”
– Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Wherever there is a human being there is an opportunity for kindness”
– Seneca

Lao Tzu
Kindness in words creates confidence, kindness in thinking creates profoundness, kindness in feeling creates love.
Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not. 

 

Charles Kuralt
The everyday kindness of the back roads more than makes up for the acts of greed in the headlines.

 

~Samuel Johnson

 

When I was young, I admired clever people.  Now that I am old, I admire kind people. 

 ~Abraham Joshua Heschel

    Hi Kerry,

    I love your list of kindness quotes. Life becomes quite simple when you make kindness your main criteria, doesn’t it? I got here by way of your wonderful page on Heather’s 2008 ADVENTure calendar. You have given so much to Soul Food and it’s a pleasure to have you in the Rookery. Have a very Merry Christmas. I am hoping all goes well with you in 2009; as Were Pen told you, just remember—everything will be OK. 🙂
