Who Said That?

Kinda Squares, Week 2 Review

Time to review the last week and once again (re)share the square photos I’ve already shared over the last seven days as well as the featured image for this post and, in an effort to make a perfect square of squares (at least when viewed on a desktop), there’s a bonus photo.

Can you guess which one?

And now for some detailed information regarding “Who said that?”

You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.

Day 8 – Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 – April 27, 1882), who went by his middle name Waldo, was an American essayist, lecturer, philosopher, and poet who led the transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century.  He was seen as a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society, and he disseminated his thoughts through dozens of published essays and more than 1,500 public lectures across the United States.

Saints were saints because they acted with loving kindness whether they felt like it or not.

Day 9 – Daniel Jay Millman (born February 22, 1946) is an American author and lecturer in the personal development field. He is best known for the movie Peaceful Warrior, which is based on his own life and taken from one of his books.

Kindness, I’ve discovered, is everything in life.

Day 10 – Isaac Bashevis Singer (November 21, 1902 – July 24, 1991) was a Polish-American writer in Yiddish, awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1978. The Polish form of his birth name was Icek Hersz Zynger. He used his mother’s first name in an initial literary pseudonym, Izaak Baszewis, which he later expanded.

Getting money is not all a man’s business: to cultivate kindness is a valuable part of the business of life.

Day 11 – Samuel Johnson, OAM (born 8 February 1978) is an Australian actor, radio presenter, voiceover artist and philanthropist. He was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for service to cancer research support organisations, and to the performing arts.

Kindness is an everyday by product of all the great virtues.

Day 12 – Krista Tippett (born November 9, 1960) is an American journalist, author, and entrepreneur. She created and hosts the public radio program and podcast On Being. In 2014, Tippett was awarded the National Humanities Medal by U.S. President Barack Obama.

Love and kindness go hand in hand.

Day 13 – Marian Keyes (born 10 September 1963) is an Irish writer of fiction noted for its readability. As well as her novels, she produces non-fiction and is best known for her work in women’s literature. Much of her writing deals with family life.

Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.

Day 14 – Princess Diana (Diana, Princess of Wales, 1 July 1961 – 31 August 1997) was a member of the British royal family. She was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, the heir apparent to the British throne, and the mother of Prince William and Prince Harry. Diana’s activism and glamour made her an international icon and earned her enduring popularity as well as unprecedented public scrutiny, exacerbated by her tumultuous private life.
