So shines a good deed in a weary world.*  

This is my simple religion.
There is no need for temples;
no need for complicated philosophy.

Our own brain, our own heart is our temple;
the philosophy is kindness.
- The Dalai Lama

Kindness in words creates confidence.
Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindness in giving creates love.
- Lao-Tzu (604 BC - 531 BC)

Remember there's no such thing
as a small act of kindness.
Every act creates a ripple
with no logical end.
- Scott Adams (1957 - )

The ideas that have lighted my way
have been kindness, beauty and truth.
- Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

That best portion of a good man's life,
His little, nameless, unremembered acts
of kindness and of love.
- William Wordsworth (1770 - 1850)

Ask yourself: Have you been kind today?
Make kindness your daily modus operandi
and change your world.
- Annie Lennox

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet
as if they were going to be dead by midnight.
Extend them all the care, kindness
and understanding you can muster.
Your life will never be the same again.

What I Want to Tell You

Be kind to one another
and to yourself.

You are OK and
I love you.

Resistance is futile.
Let it go.

Go beyond zebra.
Live, be, create.

Roll in the grass.

Sometimes a path
isn't straight.
More often than not.

- Jay Andrew Smith
