Compassionate Causes: Kindness and Compassion in Our World
I am a member of the group 1000 Voices Speak for Compassion. On the 20th of each month, we write a blog post about compassion, then we share our words and thoughts on 1000 Voices Speak.
Some thoughts about the practice of kindness and compassion:
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
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
Remember that everyone you meet is afraid of something, loves something and has lost something. ~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
