Kinda Squares, Week 4 Review

It’s hard to believe another week of Kinda Squares has passed as I sit and prepare this review and (re)share the square photos I posted over the past week. As I’ve done in my other reviews, the gallery also includes the featured image for this post and a bonus photo because it takes nine little squares to make one big one (when viewed on a desktop anyway).

One who knows how to show and to accept kindness will be a friend better than any possession.

Day 22 – Sophocles (497/6 – winter 406/5 BC). Here’s another interesting fact about Sophocles who was also quoted on Day 19. Sophocles was a wealthy member of the rural deme (small community) of Hippeios Colonus in Attica, which was to become a setting for one of his plays; and he was probably born there, a few years before the Battle of Marathon in 490 BC: the exact year is unclear, but 497/6 is most likely.

Kindness is always fashionable and always welcome.

Day 23 – Amelia Edith Huddleston Barr (March 29, 1831 – March 10, 1919) was a British novelist and teacher. Many of the plots of her stories are laid in Scotland and England. The scenes are from her girlhood recollection of surroundings.

True beauty is born through our actions and aspirations and in the kindness we offer to others.

Day 24 – Alek Wek (born 16 April 1977) is a South Sudanese-British model and designer who began her fashion career at the age of 18 in 1995. She has been hailed for her influence on the perception of beauty in the fashion industry. She is from the Dinka ethnic group in South Sudan, but fled to Britain in 1991 to escape the civil war in Sudan.

Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.

Day 25 – Maya Angelou (April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014). Here’s another interesting fact about Maya Angelou who was also quoted on Day 17. Maya Angelou is best known for her series of seven autobiographies, which focus on her childhood and early adult experiences. The first, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969), tells of her life up to the age of 17 and brought her international recognition and acclaim.

Deliberately seek opportunities for kindness, sympathy, and patience.

Day 26 – Evelyn Underhill (6 December 1875 – 15 June 1941) was an English Anglo-Catholic writer and pacifist known for her numerous works on religion and spiritual practice, in particular Christian mysticism. In the English-speaking world, she was one of the most widely read writers on such matters in the first half of the 20th century.

What wisdom can you find that is greater than kindness?

Day 27 – Jean-Jacques Rousseau (28 June 1712 – 2 July 1778) was a Genevan philosopher, writer and composer. His political philosophy influenced the progress of the Enlightenment throughout Europe, as well as aspects of the French Revolution and the development of modern political, economic and educational thought.
