There is no traffic jam on the extra mile.

Be kind to unkind people - they need it the most.

What better wisdom is there known to man than kindness

KINDNESS, n. [1] a language that the dumb can speak and the deaf can hear

Kindness is difficult to give away because it keeps coming back. --Church billboard in Louisiana

Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end. ~Scott Adams

The courtesies of a small and trivial character are the ones which strike deepest to the grateful and appreciating heart. - Henry Clay, 1777 - 1852

If you're naturally kind you attract a lot of people you don't like.-- William Feather

A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person.~ Dave Barry

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.... Leo Buscaglia

I love thee for a heart that's kind--not for the knowledge in thy mind.--William Henry Davies (1871-1940)

You can never do a kindness too soon because you never know how soon it will be too late. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Kind words, kind looks, kind acts and warm handshakes, these are means of grace when men in trouble are fighting their unseen battles. --John Hall.

Wise sayings often fall on barren ground; but a kind word is never thrown away. -- Sir Arthur Helps

Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not. Samuel Johnson

To wipe all tears from off all faces is a task too hard for mortals; but to alleviate misfortunes is often within the most limited power: yet the opportunities which every day affords of relieving the most wretched of human beings are overlooked and neglected with equal disregard of policy and goodness. -- Samuel Johnson: Rambler #107

Kind hearts are the gardens,
Kind thoughts are the roots,
Kind words are the flowers,
Kind deeds are the fruits,

Take care of your garden
And keep out the weeds,
Fill it with sunshine
Kind words and kind deeds.

Kind words produce their own image in men's souls; and a beautiful image it is. They soothe and quiet and comfort the hearer. They shame him out of his sour, morose, unkind feelings. We have not yet begun to use kind words in such abundance as they ought to be used.--Blaise Pascal

I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again. --William Penn (1644-1718)

A word of kindness is seldom spoken in vain, while witty saying are as easily lost as the pearls slipping from a broken string. -- George D. Prentice

Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust and hostility to evaporate. Albert Schweitzer

Kind words are short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. Mother Teresa

If you stop to be kind, you must swerve often from your path. Mary Webb

Let me do all the good I can, to all the people I can, as often as I can, for I shall not pass this way again. - John Wesley in David Jackman, The Communicators Commentary, Ruth1.

The best portion of a good man's life is his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love. William Wordsworth
