A small act of kindness

A small act of kindness can make a big difference. For when kindness is given, it inspires and enables even more kindness.

You will cross paths today with someone who desperately needs to receive a little kindness. Kindness costs you nothing, and with it you can give so much.

Even when it seems that your kindness is not appreciated, that kindness does indeed make a difference. Even if your kindness is not acknowledged, it is noticed, and over time can soften the hardest hearts.

There is a special joy that comes when you do something just to be kind. Let go of your concern about what’s in it for you, and experience how truly good it feels.

Kindness can be so wonderfully refreshing. The world remembers and respects those who offer it on a regular basis.

It’s easy to give a little kindness. It’s immensely powerful when you do it over and over again.

— Ralph Marston
