Wednesday, November 13, 2013  is World Kindness Day. In honor of this special day, I’ve collected a few quotes to share with you. The counselor at my school shared this video clip with me and I want to pass it along.

That best portion of a man’s life, his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love.~ William Wordsworth

You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn’t anyone who doesn’t appreciate kindness and compassion.~Dalai Lama

Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.~Kahlil Gibran

A kind word is like a spring day.~Russian Proverb

Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness.~Seneca

  1. So much kindness has been shown with the recent tragedy in the Philippines. Truly inspiring. Till now co-workers and friends are doing whatever they can to help. Now there’s tornado in Illinois. In moments of darkness, kindness is a light of hope for so many.

  3. Thanks so much! It does help to have the reminder, even though I agree with Pauline that we shouldn’t need one. The quotes are lovely and I have re-blogged this. ~ Linne

  4. Reblogged this on A Random Harvest and commented:
    On the heels of Remembrance Day and the super typhoon’s devastation, World Kindness Day is a welcome respite. Thanks to fingerprintwriting for the original post. Let’s each do two acts of kindness tomorrow. Pass it on . . . ~ Linne

  5. Lovely quotes and nice to see the children being encouraged to notice the kindness of others!

    Personally though, I think it is very sad that we need to have a ‘World Kindness Day’ – after all, should we not be kind to each other every day? Life is so much nicer and surprisingly easier when you are kind – as you well know 🙂

    It also seems a bit odd to me that even while wars are waged such a thing is mooted – but I wonder if that is just me being crotchety and not at all kind :-{

    I am pleased that you are there, encouraging us all on however! Big hug to you!!
