Elbert Hubbard: Recipe for having friends; be one.
Theodore Issaac Rubin: Kindness is more important than wisdom, and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom.
Children can be cruel to each other; teasing someone and then saying, I was playing, or I'm only kidding is not acceptable. Instilling kindness is essential to put an end to bullying. Kindness is the character trait that is basic to all that is good. Kindness can be shown by being friendly, willing to help, being gentle or empathetic. Showing acts of kindness can improve the quality of life. The kindness we show to people, animals, and to the earth is given, and then reflected back to us.
