Be kind

Kindness is an interesting concept. We are all aware of what kindness is and what it stands for, but I would argue a lot of us struggle to practice its meaning on a day-to-day basis, especially lately thanks to the whole pandemic and all.

Because of the state of the world right now, I thought it might be useful to write a post about kindness as a reminder to practice it whenever possible. I wanted to see what sorts of sayings about kindness I could find via Google and share it with all of you, and these quotes come from FTD by design.
