Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.
Sometimes a neighbor whom we have disliked a lifetime for his arrogance and conceit lets fall a single commonplace remark that shows us another side, another man, really; a man uncertain and puzzled, and in the dark like ourselves.
Willa S. Cather
Pay bad people with your goodness; fight their hatred with your kindness. Even in you do not achieve victory over other people, you will conquer yourself.
Hence we must support one another, console one another, mutually help, counsel, and advise.
Thomas a Kempis
We all long for heaven where God is, but we have it in our power to be in heaven with Him right now- to be happy with Him at this very moment. But being happy with Him now means loving like He loves, helping like He helps, giving as He gives, serving as He serves, rescuing as He rescues, being with Him twenty-four hours a day- touching Him in His distressing disguise.
