Quote of the week No. 22: On kindness

“Kindness in words creates confidence.
Kindness in thinking creates profundity.
Kindness in giving creates love.”



Lao Tse, Chinese philosopher generally considered to be the founder of Taoism. What more can you say? Except that I hereby promise to bear in mind these beautiful words in all my dealings with my children.



PS Hot today -- 33°C at 3:30pm. But there was the shade of a beatiful tree to rest under this afternoon (grazie, Marzia per una bella festa).

I love this quotation... and try to remember it every day (and fail too probably on a daily basis too)...

Saw you had a new site up. Love the photos! Good luck with that venture...

I linked here from Karin's blog. You have an interesting site. I've read a number of the quotes, your piece on postmodernism a few posts previous to this one, and linked to your other site for a book review. Very good.

I like quotes, since I write a daily radio devotional and frequently build a talk off of a quote. I'll be back.

First I'm shocked its 33C. Last time I visited, it was freezing. That shows how long it's been.
Love the quote on kindness.
