A bit of fragrance always clings to the hand that gives roses.

(Art by G. Elgar Hicks 1910)

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

 ~Mark Twain~

Life is short but there is always time for courtesy.

 ~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

From the grapevine...
A few bloggers in the vast world of Blogland  have occasionally overlooked Kindness...
Such a simple rule...
It helps all of us to keep on smiling...


  1. Taking with me yet another great quote from your page today. Like them all, but especially the first.
    I was actually telling myself this morning how much hatred there is all around us these days, not to mention manners being almost nonexistent. When I stop to think of this, and I get more sad than angry, I think of how much it should make us strive all the more to do the very opposite. I know we all have an occasional off day, but in general it is a good goal.

    It's always a pleasure visiting with you, Noelle. Glad you enjoyed the music today. ;) And the book in your latest post sounds like a very good read.

    Much love,

  2. I think I'm going to add that quote to my comment message. Hope you don't mind, but please do not hesitate to let me know if you do.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  3. These are all great and sensible quotes - but sadly, too often, everyday life these days seems to be devoid of the basic "milk of human kindness". I had to look up that phrase I used as it came to me instinctively but then looked wrong - but it is a phrase from Shakespeare's Macbeth and refers to care and compassion for others.


I love to share dreams and always enjoy meeting kindred spirits!
Thank you for stopping by!
