Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness.
George Sand French author (1804 - 1876)
The gentleness of a human soul is a resource that often goes untapped nowadays. We sometimes ignore it in others and forget it in ourselves in the mighty struggle to just get by. We rush through everything at hyper speed, overlooking treasures right before our eyes. And internal treasures can be quickly hidden behind the issues life and love pile upon us. But it is our saving grace.
Kindness unites all humans, it gives the benefit of the doubt when needed. Compassion forgives without charging a fee. Empathy inspires understanding of the soul deep variety. And it simply all begins with a bit of kindness.
Johann Goethe called kindness "The golden chain by which society is bound together" and I think that just about says it all. Be kind to one another, but first of all be kind to yourself. Guard well the treasures inside and they will protect you in troubled times.
