    “Your greatness is measured by your kindness;

    your education and intellect by your modesty; your ignorance is betrayed by your suspicions and prejudices, and your real caliber is measured by the consideration and tolerance you have for others.” —William J.H. Boetcker (1873-1962)

    Lately we (my wife and I) have made a habit out

    of paying for a strangers meal at a restaurant. We don't go out much, but it's a neat feeling. We have done it at the till, and also gone up to people at their table. We will pick someone having a bad experience (baby won't stop crying is an easy one). I would walk up and...

    I love when people are kind without need of

    reward. I love when they don't boast about it. Secret acts of kindness are the best kind. I love when people are kind when those around them aren't. It's beautiful when you see a few people joking about someone or laughing about someone and a person simply walks away from those...

    Today as I was pulling into the Starbucks

    drive-thru, another lady pulled in from the front entrance. She gestured for me to pull ahead of her, but instead I motioned for her to go ahead of me. I wasn't in a rush. So when I get to the window to pay for my coffee, the cashier told me the woman I let go ahead of me paid...

    Every time someone is extremely kind to me I

    I admire people who have been through really

    painful situations (and who have every right to be mad at the world) but they still remained to be kind hearted people and not bitter.

    Surround yourself by those

    who bring out the best in you and want to make you become a better person. I spent all day today doing just that. Being surrounded by love and happiness is truly a blessing that I'll never take for granted. :]

    Kind people and act of kindness should always

    be appreciated and reciprocated. Getting inspired by some innocent acts makes it easier for me to be kind with others.

    My friend Reed had once commented on my mood

    one day. He said, "You always seem so happy?" and I told him I'd rather spend the rest of my days being happy instead of sad. "Well, why not be happy everyday?" I asked him. He looked a little surprised. He agreed, though. I was thinking about how I can be affected by all the...

    Why are kind people so difficult to find

    nowadays? Is it a "trend" to be rude and selfish? If for someone kind equals naive or weak, for me means being human. Thank you kind people, even if you are just a few, for being in my life!

    Kindness is inspiring.

    A kind person does not celebrate that which makes them different from others, but those things that they share with strangers. Kind hearts are noble hearts.
