be kind quotes

Kindness is one of the most overlooked qualities in today’s society. What we say to someone and the way we act towards has the ability to completely make or break their day. While being kind seems self-explanatory, there’s a variety of ways to express it. Simple acts of kindness like holding the door for someone or just simply greeting everyone with a smile can go a long way.

I remember one particular day when I was returning from university. When entering the bus I noticed that the individual in front of me, didn’t have enough money on their card to pay the fare. Noticing this I thought I would do something nice for them and picked up their fare. The reaction I received was heart-warming. It turned out the individual was having a terrible day. They had just received a bad grade on one of their highest-weighted exams which contributed greatly to their sadness. Now to add on to their already bad day, they were unable to pay the bus fare to get home.

To further help showcase the idea of how to be kind, Scott Adams said it best:

Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.

Keeping this in mind I have compiled a list of my 40 favourite “be kind” quotes.
