A kindness received should be returned with a freer hand.

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.

Day 31 – Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910), known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer.

A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.

September 24 – Squares Countdown – William Arthur Ward (December 17, 1921–March 30, 1994) was an often quoted writer of inspirational maxims. More than 100 articles, poems and meditations written by Ward were published in such magazines as Reader’s DigestThe Phi Delta KappanScience of Mind, and various Christian publications.

The best portion of a man’s life is his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love.

September 13 – Kinda Squares Announcement – William Wordsworth (7 April 1770 – 23 April 1850) was an English Romantic poet who, with Samuel Taylor Coleridge, helped to launch the Romantic Age in English literature with their joint publication Lyrical Ballads (1798). Wordsworth’s magnum opus is generally considered to be The Prelude, a semiautobiographical poem of his early years that he revised and expanded a number of times. It was posthumously titled and published by his wife in the year of his death, before which it was generally known as The poem to Coleridge.

And here’s a special thought from Samuel Johnson, OAM who also featured on Day 11.

Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not.
Samuel Johnson

Johnson’s stated mission is to remind every Australian woman about the need to be ‘breast aware’, in an effort to promote early detection and improve survival rates, via his charitable foundation, Love Your Sister. (Johnson’s sister Connie died of cancer on September 8, 2017.)

On 24 August 2019, Love your Sister reached their initial goal of raising $10,000,000.
