There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us.

Put goodness into action

Do you wish other people were more kind, generous, understanding, and tolerant? Then encourage them to be with your own actions and attitude.

No one can force genuine goodness in others. But anyone can be an example of the power of generosity, the benefits of tolerance and understanding.

Are you disenchanted with life, feeling that the world has become cruel and corrupt beyond measure? Then prove to yourself and to others how good life can be by the way you live it.

The potential for goodness still is very much alive. It lives in you and in all the other people like you.

Put into action, in your own life, the goodness you wish to see in the world. Not only can your offering of kindness improve your own outlook, it will inspire even more kindness in others.

Goodness is a choice available for each person to make in each moment. Choose what’s right, what’s good, in matters large and small, and by so doing you encourage others to choose goodness as well.

— Ralph Marston
