ABC  Wednesday

The letter this week is K

K is for Kindness


What do we live for if it is not to make life less difficult for each other.
George Eliot



Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness.  Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness.
George Sands



Just because an animal is large, it doesn't mean he doesn't want kindness;  however big Tigger seems to be, remember that he wants as much kindness as Roo.
A.A. Milne



Compassion is the basis of all morality.
Arthur Schopenhauer


I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
Ettiene De Grellet



If you have a rose to give, give it now.
Tomorrow may be too late.

If you will Kindly click here you will arrive at ABC Wednesday where there are many more interpretations of the letter K, - with thanks to Mrs. Nesbitt and all who so kindly help her.

thanks for the post. A lot of times, lately, I feel that people have forgotten that there is such a thing as kindness.
