Kindness

Posted: Fri Jan 09, 2009 4:15 pm

A good article in Saturday’s Guardian argued that kindness is out of fashion – but that it’s not going to go away.

‘‘People think that they envy other people for their success, money, fame, when in fact it is kindness that is most envied, because it is the strongest indicator of people’s well-being, their pleasure in existence… There is a part of us all which knows that kindness – the unromantic kindness, which encourages a feeling of aliveness as compatible with, indeed integral to, a feeling of vulnerability – creates the kind of intimacy, the kind of involvement with other people, that we both fear and crave. That it is kindness, fundamentally, that makes life seem worth living: and that everything that is against kindness is an assault on our hope.’’

It is just as easy to be kind as it is to be nasty and makes for a far more pleasant world.
Just look at all the lovely people on this forum!
If people returned kindness with kindness we would all be better off.

Money cannot buy the most important things in life. To give without expecting anything in return is a wonderful thing to do.

I remember someone telling me years ago...."It´s nice to be important, but more important to be nice"....never forgot it either.
