“I have learned silence from the talkative, tolerance from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind. I should not be ungrateful to those teachers.” ~Kahlil Gibran
Let your heart speak to others’ hearts.
I saw a flower on a summer day
Wilting and dying for lack of rain.
Just a quiet shower would have surely brought
All of its loveliness back again.
Why did I suddenly want to cry?
Was it because that, likewise, I
Needed a shower of love to revive
My joy of living and being alive?
(Darling, what makes you unable to see
What a little love would do for me?)
~Dana B. Nelson
Be the light in someone’s darkness.
There is a direct correlation between the way something is said and the way it is received. Speak kindly.
Compassion has no limit. Kindness has no enemy.
