Kindness defeats everything and can never be defeated.
You can stand firm in a fight against everything except kindness.
— Jean Jacques Rousseau
It is not the blaming of evil but the glorifying of goodness that creates harmony in our life.
— Lucy Malory
If a good action has an ulterior cause, then it is not truly good. If it expects reward, it is not truly good. Good things are beyond reason and consequence.
In the same way that fireworks and torches cannot be seen in the light of the sun, the best intellect and the greatest beauty cannot be seen in the light of the kindness of a single heart.
— Arthur Schopenhauer
The most tender plants can push their way through the hardest rocks, and it is the same with kindness. Nothing can stop a truly kind and sincere person.
— Henry David Thoreau
The person does not exist to whom you cannot do good.
— Lucius Annaeus Seneca
We do good to people not in hope of reward, but because we see the divine spirit within everyone.
The best and easiest way to thwart evil in this world is to respond to it with kind words, return an evil action with good.
