Everyone, to those weaker than themselves, is kind.
      - Aeschylus

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
      - Aesop

Both man and womankind belie their nature
  When they are not kind.
      - Philip James Bailey, Festus (sc. Home)

Kindness is wisdom. There is none in life
  But needs it and may learn.
      - Philip James Bailey, Festus (sc. Home)

Ministers who threaten death and destruction employ weapons of weakness. Argument and kindness are alone effectual, flavored by the principles of Divine love.
      - Hosea Ballou

Kindness steers no easy course. Attributing it to character, we seldom recognize the secret efforts of a noble heart, whereas we reward really wicked people for the evil they refrain from committing.
      - Honore de Balzac

Always try to be a little kinder than necessary.
      - Sir James Matthew Barrie

We may scatter the seeds of courtesy and kindness around us at so little expense. Some of them will inevitably fall on good ground, and grow up into benevolence in the minds of others: and all of them will bear fruit of happiness in the bosom whence they spring.
      - Jeremy Bentham

Paradise is open to all kind hearts.
      - Pierre Jean de Beranger

Kindness is a language the dumb can speak and the deaf can hear and understand.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

Gentle feelings produce profoundly beneficial effects upon stern natures. It is the spring rain which melts the ice-covering of the earth, and causes it to open to the beams of heaven.
      - Fredrika Bremer

Have you had a kindness shown?
  Pass it on;
    'Twas not given for thee alone,
      Pass it on;
        Let it travel down the years,
          Let it wipe another's tears,
            'Till in Heaven the deed appears--
              Pass it on.
      - Rev. Henry Burton, Pass It On

I would help others out of a fellow-feeling.
      - Robert Burton,
        Anatomy of Melancholy--Democritus to the Reader

Heaven in sunshine will requite the kind.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

You can get much farther with a smile, a kind word, and a gun than you can with a smile and a kind word.
      - Alphonse (Al) Capone (nicknamed "Scarface")

It is difficult to tell how much men's minds are conciliated by a kind manner and gentle speech.
  [Lat., Sed tamen difficile dictu est, quantopere conciliat animos hominum comitas affabilitasque sermonis.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        De Officiis (II, 14)

Act with kindness, but do not expect gratitude.
      - Confucius

The best that we can do is to be kindly and helpful toward our friends and fellow passengers who are clinging to the same speck of dirt while we are drifting side by side to our common doom.
      - Clarence Darrow

Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things, in which smiles and kindness, and small obligations, given habitually, are what win and preserve the heart, and secure comfort.
      - Sir Humphrey Davy

He who confers a favor should at once forget it, if he is not to show a sordid ungenerous spirit. To remind a man of a kindness conferred on him, and to talk of it, is little different from reproach.
      - Demosthenes

How wise must one be to be always kind.
      - Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

Kindness which is not inexhaustible does not deserve the name.
      - Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

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

You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Kind words are the music of the world.
      - Rev. Frederick William Faber
