Spreading Kindness & Link Up On the Edge #22

“Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough.” -Franklin D. Roosevelt


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


“Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. They bless the one who receives them, and they bless you, the giver.” -Barbara de Angelis


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


“The level of our success is limited only by our imagination and no act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.” -Aesop


“You can accomplish by kindness what you cannot by force.” -Publilius Syrus


“Kindness is more important than wisdom, and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom.” -Theodore Isaac Rubin

“A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.” -Amelia Earhart


β€œLive simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, leave the rest to God.”Ronald Reagan

  7. Shelbee, thanks so much for all those inspirational quotes. Every single one is a well chosen reminder of what kindness can do. I especially love the one by Franklin Roosevelt. Your outfit is really cute. I am seeing more and more people layering longer pieces with longer pieces and longer pieces under shorter pieces and I love the look. Part of what draws me to it, is the fact that when you are a clothes horse like I am I can wear so many more pieces all at the same time. Ha, ha. I love the metallic pop of your shoes. Thanks too for the opportunity to link up. I was tickled to be chosen as a favorite last week! Have a great weekend! – Amy

    • Thanks so much, Amy! I like that view of being able to wear more pieces at once. I have so many clothes and I love them all. It really is a fantastic way to give them all their moment in time! Keep spreading the kindness!
