Kindness a Book of Quotations to Inspire and Console
Not long ago I finished reading a book Why Kindness is Good For You by David R. Hamilton, and this little book of quotations virtually says some of the same things but in a way students can easily understand. Sometimes a quote will ring a bell with you and stick with you forever. Some of my favourites from this book include:
Choose being kind over being right, and you'll be right every time.
The highest form of wisdom is kindness.
Find the seed at the bottom of your heart and bring forth a flower.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
No act of kindness, however small, is wasted.
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.
The Dalai Lama
People who fight fire with fire usually end up with ashes.
Abigail Van Buren
