Today I’m excited to be celebrating World Kindness Day, which is officially tomorrow, November 13th. In celebration, I am going to share a few inspirational quotes about being kind, that I hope will trigger some deep thinking, as well as two excellent resources for putting kindness into action in your life, and in the lives of those around you.
“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” ~Dalai Lama
“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” ~Mark Twain
“Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness.” Seneca
“Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not.” ~Samuel Johnson
“You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Although it is only celebrated one day every year, being kind is something that should be done year ’round. What kind habits will you put into place in your life to live a fuller, happier and kinder life? (share your thoughts below.)
