A book is not only a friend,

it makes friends for you.


When you have possessed a book
with mind and spirit,
you are enriched.
But when you pass it on
you are enriched threefold.
- Henry Miller

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
True generosity requires
more of us than kindly impulse.
Above all it requires imagination -- the capacity
to see people in all their perplexities and needs,
and to know how to expend ourselves
effectively for them.
- I. Wiley

If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time, but if you
have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let
us work together.

Lila Watson, Aboriginal Australian


You must give some time
to your fellow men.
Even if it’s a little thing,
do something for others -
something for which
you get no pay
but the privilege of doing it.

Albert Schweitzer

If someone listens, or stretches out a hand,

or whispers a kind word


of encouragement,

or attempts to understand a lonely person,

extraordinary things
begin to happen. - Loretta Girzaitis
We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference,

ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time,

add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.

—Marian Wright Edelman

Two kinds of gratitude:

The sudden kind we feel for what we take;


the larger kind we feel for what we give.

Edwin Arlington Robinson


I am done with great things and big plans,
great institutions and big success.
I am for those tiny, invisible, loving, human forces
that work from individual to individual,
creeping through the crannies of the world
like so many rootlets, or like the capillary oozing of water,
which, if given time,
will rend the hardest monuments of pride.
- William James

A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions,


and the roots spring up and make new trees.
The greatest work that kindness does to others is that
it makes them kind themselves.
Lawrence G. Lovasik
If I have been of service,
if I have glimpsed more of the nature
and essence of ultimate good,
if I am inspired to reach wider horizons
of thought and action,
if I am at peace with myself,
it has been a successful day.
- Alex Noble

The fragrance always


remains on the hand that
gives the rose.
Mahatma Gandhi
' ’t say that you want to give, but go ahead and give
Don !
' ll never catch up with a mere hope.
You
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I slept and dreamt that life was joy,


I awoke and saw that life was service,
I acted and, behold,
service was joy.

- Rabindranath Tagore
Never doubt that a small, group of thoughtful,
committed citizens can change the world.

Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

- Margaret Mead

Even after all this time the sun never says


to the earth, "You owe Me."

Look what happens with a love like that,


it lights the whole sky.
- Hafiz
Those who bring
sunshine to the lives
of others
cannot keep it from
themselves. 

~James Matthew Barrie

All who would win joy, must share it;


happiness was born a twin.
--Lord Byron
One way or another,
we all have to find what best fosters
the flowering of our humanity in this
contemporar y life, and dedicate
ourselves to that.
- Joseph Campbell

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
Once you begin to acknowledge

and the on you have given,
you can no longer believe that
at you do do n maer .
- Dawna Markova

The miracle is this -


the more we share,
the more we have.
- Leonard Nimoy
Wherever there is
a human being ,
there is an opportunit y
for a kindness.
– Seneca

A hundred times every day


I remind myself that my inner and outer life
are based on the labor of others,
living and dead,
and that I must exert myself
in order to give in the same measure
as I have received and am receiving.
- Albert Einstein
In everyone's life, at some time,
our inner fire goes out.
It is then burst into flame by an encounter
with another human being.
We should all be thankful
for those people who
rekindle the inner spirit.
- Albert Schweitz

Imagine what a harmonious world it


could be if every single person,
both young and old, shared a little of
what he is good at doing.
-- Quincy Jones
